The Irish Times will be conducting polling in the field tomorrow and Tuesday on support for the political parties and leader support.

They appear to have decided to bring it forward given recent events and the figures will be published Friday in the Irish Times and are likely to be featured on the RTE 9pm news on Thursday (as well as here too immediately before or after).

The Sunday Business Post will also be conducting polling this week, with their results out at the weekend.

Where shall the daggers strike this time?

Hanafin and Co are going to be timing their next moves from this poll.

Why are you telling us about their polls. Grab a share of this action and conduct your own poll.

Doesn't really matter.
Come the actual elections the gob************************es will vote FF back in, probably under a new leader.
The people who whinge morning, noon and night these days chickened out last time and brought Bertie back. They'll do something similar next time and then start whingeing again.
Depressing, I know, but likely imo.

There is a palpable anger that one can almost taste, things are not going to be pretty.

What support did FF get at the last one, 17%, I reckon 12% this time around.

makes sense - suspect at least one of them will throw in prefered leader of FF question, will be a bit more scientific than the one in the Sindo!

I don't know if the core vote will change that much but I think the undecideds will start to solidify against FF

Enda Kenny also needs a good poll. This means that the level of political activity should be very high tomorrow,in order to try to influence those being polled.

So that's an MRBI on Friday (probably released Thurs evening) and RedC on Sunday (released Sat evening)? That must be as close together as they've ever been outside an election. Given the polling periods will overlap, it will be interesting how close they are on the headline stats, particularly given MRBI are supposed to be adjusting their adjustments methodology.

I can`t see Enda Kenny polling well this time around .He has been virtually invisible in the last few months .Fianna Fail might do better than expected ,in spite of Cowen,as people seem to believe in Lenihan.Sindo ran small poll this week .21% would be in favour of a FF/LAB government -up 2% on last months poll.

This will be the most interesting poll of the year, not only because of the timing, but because it will also be under MRBIs new methodoloy (the prvious one was systematically underestimating FF support).

The key thing to watch will be the CORE numbers and not the post adjustment numbers.
