They are far more likely to vote Green. If SF are ahead on the 1st count, he's more likely to go out first.
Yes they are and Smith will top the poll perhaps with a surplus which will transfer to RBB, not sure SF will be ahead of him, I might be wrong.

The Sol/PBP group may or should be renamed in the next Dáil. There may not be any SP/Sol TD's reelected and I've heard that Paul Murphy is likely to get reelected in DSW and he has his own party Rise so should be incorporated in the name of the group. I will be delighted if Ruth Coppinger loses her seat. If the other sole outgoing SP/Sol TD Mick Barry in Cork loses his seat also that will round it off to me as a happy election in terms of the far-left. I don't have much interest in PBP although hope that Bríd Smith gets reelected before Joan Collins. They have 3 outgoing TD's and if they lose any of them I will be a bit pleased but again I am not really interested in their fortunes.

You seem terribly bitter about something.

Donnelly is sucking up votes in RC's string areas, she's in serious trouble it seems, still a bit to go though.

Donnelly's surplus may save Coppinger, really irony given what happened in 2016.

Pity about Ruth Coppinger, a real feisty, independent, socialist warrior. She will be back, compared to most of the dross in Dail Eirean, she's a top quality political operator, grounded in her community and fighting for them every day.

They are open to being in government but not with the two right wing parties, if the Greens or the Shinners had balls they'd stay out of government and force FF and FG together but they won't and we'll be left wth one more centre right gov and the continuation of a housing crisis, health crisis etc.
The ball's in their court now,
