This is a Sunday Times/Behaviour & Attitudes poll and the comparison is with a previous poll in December. There's nothing dramatic but it's the first major one of the new year so here goes.

FG - 32% (-2)
FF - 26% (NC)
SF - 18% (+1)
Lab - 6% (+1)
IA - 4% (NC)
GP - 2% (NC)
Sol/PBP - 2% (NC)
SD - 1% (-1)

Independents are up 1 to 9%.

So, there's a loss of momentum by Fine Gael and, despite Ruth Coppinger's mocking the party's support, Labour is now three times more popular than Solidarity/PBP.

Nothing major as you say and certainly nothing to motivate any of them towards an early GE. No impact either from Barry the Oaf and his Loaf - no surprise there either, as those who support SF already know the background and support them either despite or because of it.

That probably had less impact south of the border than up north.

People will already have known about Mary Lou being a shoo-in for the SF leadership and so far, that's not given the party any bounce. But she's not president yet so it remains to be seen if that will give the Sinners a boost.

For a lot of people, the two stories are rooted in incidents that occurred when they were children over even before they were born.

For the millennials, there's a recognition that things were grim grim grim in the 1970s and 1980s but they're not going to get all angry and worked up about them. They have their own concerns.

Jasus. As far as SF are concerned this poll is nothing short of miraculous given the hate fest they had to endure after the bread on head affair.

The old geezers in the South who went ballistic over Barry McElduff were nowhere to be seen last week when Sammy Wilson called Leo Varadkar a nutcase and when Loyalists were all over social media waving Ormo bread packets to insult the families of the 5 Catholics murdered by the UDA on the Ormeau Road in Belfast in February 1992. The Southern media and political Establishment has ignored, excused and provided cover for British/Unionist terrorism over the past 40 years.

A FF/SF coalition it is then. Interesting. A pan nationalist all Ireland force in the offering. But an economic cataclysm. Take your pick!

Third one in a row now that confirms the gap between FF and FG. I think the knives will soon be out for Micheal Martin.

Agree, he's a shyster of the worst kind, an anti Northern partitionist AND a direct link to the old FF guard from which a whiff still comes off. If Sinn Fein HAD to break with their past and remove Gerry Adams THEN it is IMPERATIVE that Micheal Martin goes too, he's a throwback.

They are out for him internally over his speech about the 8th Amendment. If the next couple of polls show FF sliding down because of that, and SF rising due to the Mary Lou effect.. then Martin will be in serious trouble.

Only problem is, where do the disaffected FFers go.. I think all the main parties have decided to keep their heads down on this one

Not a hope of that.. it'll be as you were, FG leading FF around by the nose

Brendan Howlin will have AK47 breathing down his neck too.

Labour is up but there's no sign of a real revival.

You are a bit of a "throwback" yourself........to the point where you are throw up. But do tell us more about that whiff......

Sf/ira has not broken with sf/ira despite the window dressing. Any fool will tell you that.
