Enda is toast on figures like this.

Kenny gone.
Judging by the way some of Kenny's detractors in FG reacted to the last poll in the Irish Times I wouldn't be suprised but will Bruton have the balls again or will someone stick the knife into Kenny (mot literally).

Not good for FG but remember this is the poll which was dismissed the last time it was published as it read FF 21 FG 27 & LAB 29.. Poll came out later that week or the following week which read differently.

While there is no doubt that Labour support is rising, there is no way FG are at 24. IPSOS did the poll as opposed to TNS which is a company with a better poll accuracy record. IPSOS & Landsdown are not regular pollers like TNS & Redc.

THIS POLL IS RIGGED. Tommy O'Brien will be along any moment now. Enda will be Taoiseach. He will be. He will be.

Kenny is a liability! We've known this since 2002.

His performance in the Dail today was embarrassing.

Kenny gone.
No because the people in that echo-chamber don't care about public opinion. Remember Nice I/Lisbon I. I still think the poll is over-estimating the Labour vote, because Labour underperformed the polls in 2009 by 6%. I would put them on 27%.

It also has to be seen though in the context of a friendly Dublin 4-media which refuses to ask Labour the tough questions about policy. Like the Clegg-bounce, the Gilmore-gale is built on foundations of quicksand, which will rapidly dissipate when faced with the rigours of a GE campaign.

I agree, shame, really, as he may have been a decent leader, there isn't any smell of arrogance about him, or corruption. Still, he did mess up the George Lee thing.

If there was a GE tomorrow I think the Lab vote would drop 5 and the FF would increase 5. People lie.

The polls are very worrying for FG but how would the public react to another heave on Kenny?

It didn't go down too well, just seen as FG fighting amongst themselves.

While the polls seem to indicate Labour are doing well can anyone tell me what their policies are? Its all down to Gilmore's populist rhetoric.

This cant be serious.

We must live in North Korea.

RTE focusing on Enda Kennys leadership of FG with the IMFs arrival about 2 months away. Incredible.

And Labour out way in front. Fantastic. Pay rises all round for public servants. They are the wealth creators after all.

How long are the FG posters on this site going to tell us black is white? The electorate have no faith in EK and we know that he has no marvellous hidden talents no matter how many times we are told he has. We can't allow this country to fall into the hands of Labour and the unions, can FG not pull together a voting majority of patriots rather than gombeen men?
