Is this the much anticipated Leo bounce? Or is it that the governing party does well after a long period of being out of the news such as the summer recess? Anyway, the Blueshirts will be purring with the latest Sunday Times B&A poll which has the party at 33%, up four points.

Fianna Fáil has fallen five points to 25%. Sinn Féin is up 1 to 19%.

FG - 33% (+4)
FF - 25% (-5)
SF - 19% (+1)
Independents - 10% (+1)
Independent Alliance - 3% (-1)
Labour - 5% (NC)
Solidarity/PBP - 1% (+1)
SD - 1% (NC)
Greens - 2% (NC)

Full details here.

Meanwhile, a separate poll gives Leo Varadkar a 51% approval rating.

A bit of both. FF and Martin have been more or less sidelined for the last few months while all the focus has been on Varadkar and FG. The signalling about SF being in government with FF may have caused problems for FF.

Not surprising really Irish folk have never liked hurlers on the ditch.

Is 4% huge with the usual 3% margin of error? :lol:

Though I will admit to finding blueshirts quite prone to the old exaggeration.

It could be a one off, and opposition tend to have lower profile during the recess, but the issue is more to do with the gap between the FF and FG.

Will FF and FG ever call a halt to the civil war?

How do you treat the margin of error?

Second term for the New Politics. Labour as you were but on 5%, their marginal seats are still shaky I guess such as Joan Burton and Willie Penrose.

The only realistic alternative to a FG return to government is a Sinn Féin / Fianna Fail alliance.
Fianna fail have no chance of making it back to power on 25%. But with Sinn Féin's 19% they are in with a real shout.

Leo had to get a bounce. It just took longer than expected.

A very bad poll for Labour. Howlin has actually made things worse for the party. They should have gone with AK47.
