A new poll released this morning shows FG getting a bit of a bounce following the election of Leo Varadkar as Taoiseach.

Here are the figures.
FG - 31%, up 6
FF - 26%, down 1
SF - 16%, down 1
Lab - 7%, up 2
GP, - 4%, up 2
SD - 2%
Sol/PBP - 2%
Ind/Others - 11%, down 4

Usual health warnings apply. 31% is nice for the Blueshirts but they're not in election territory. Perhaps as significant as this is the slow leak of support from Solidarity/PBP back to Labour.

Was this after the Whelan affair?

Good result for FG. RTE shilling for Lab with that headline, both Lab and Greens up 2%, less than the margin of error.

Independents should be nervous.

Only 6 points?
Imagine what would happen if he had a supine media, a Greek chorus of harpies and if he posed for the front pages at a major Dublin street event?

What major Dublin street event? The poll was carried out the week he became Taoiseach. With all due respect, I think most people know that polls are not carried out, analyzed and published in the space of 24 hours.

An FG/Labour/GP coalition has potential going by these figures - although Labour would be crazy to go for that option.

The poll was carried out the week Leo V became Taoiseach so we hadn't hit peak Máire Whelan. In the long run, those injudicious comments by Micheál Martin might mean that the whole affair hurts FF more than FG.

Sol/PBP 2% of the vote. FFS. Judging by the amount of coverage they get from a sympathetic media you would think they were on 52%.
They are never off RTE. Seems like they have an office on the Montrose campus. Vincent is not found wanting on TV3 either.
And this during the long-running #JowabsTowanNotGilty farce. :lol:

People have them rumbled. They're an urban protest party and their natural territory is in the street shouting and roaring.

They've made no serious effort to set up a national network which shows their lack of interest in the Irish people as a whole.

From the yo yo nature of the polls, it seems the people have no one rumbled and the politicians have the people rumbled

Your tulip avatar is once more proven to be appropriate.

You see RTÉ's headline that FG and Labour are up, based on the information from a poll that FG and Labour are up as "shilling for Labour".

You see most people would consider that headline an accurate reflection of the result of the poll.

It's not. A truthful and accurate headline would say there's a leap for FG and a drop for Independents.

But carry on shilling old boy.

Martin is no Jack Kennedy, I suspect a heave against him is coming ?

Bound to be. He seems to have a good couple of weeks at a time, then throw it away with something utterly stupid like the above.

Headlines are, of necessity, brief. If they didn't have to be brief, there'd be no need to write the articles that appear under them.

But carry on shilling old boy.
Likewise, tulip.

Dunno about that, but it certainly draws healthy attention to (a) their own record in terms of cronyism in judicial appointments and (not unrelatedly) (b) their more general utterly cynical, opportunistic hypocrisy.

This makes for a nice FG/FF majority Government. Well done to SF for allowing this to happen, with your forgetting about the workers of Ireland and concentrating on advocating for Travelers, Immigrants and poster boys for Islamic loons in Egypt.

Agreed.

I see it as FG > FF by 5% and SF IRA moving back to their 13% figure :)
