A POLL SET to be published in tomorrow’s Sunday Business Post will show a dent in the support of both Labour and Sinn Féin.

Support for the Labour party has fallen by three points down to 7%, with backing for Sinn Féin dropping by the same amount down to 18%.

The only political party to see a rise in its figures was Fianna Fáil, climbing to 20%.

Fine Gael saw their support remain consistent on 28% – showing the same level of popularity they had after the marriage referendum last month.

The big winners seem to be Independents, who have had their support increase by 5 points to 23%. The group had seen its support fall by six points in a poll last month from 24% to 18%.
