LOVE the headline in the INDO.

Despite the LAST poll showing the exact opposite.

EDIT.

In fact BOTH Polls were covered by the same guy !

LEO Varadkar’s victory in the Fine Gael leadership contest has resulted in no significant bounce for the party ahead of his appointment as Taoiseach next week, according to the latest opinion poll.
The first poll since Mr Varadkar was elected shows Fine Gael and Fianna Fail are neck-and-neck among voters with both parties at 29 per cent.
In fact, Fianna Fail is up two points in the poll compared to Fine Gael which is up just one point.

LEO Varadkar’s appointment as Taoiseach has resulted in a dramatic poll boost for Fine Gael.
The latest Sunday Independent/Kantar Millward Brown opinion shows a massive nine point swing between Fine Gael and Fianna Fail since Mr Varadkar succeeded Enda Kenny as Taoiseach.
Fine Gael is up five points to 30pc while Fianna Fail is down four points to 29pc compared to a poll taken in February.

Mr Varadkar’s personal satisfaction rating (49pc) is far above that of his predecessor Mr Kenny (27pc). It is also the first time in more than three years that a Fine Gael leader’s satisfaction rating is higher than Fianna Fail leader Michael Martin (45pc)
jesus phillip, make up yer mind !

:D

Paul Murphy is learning the hard way that Irish people don't like nastiness and thuggishness.

Those events preceded the last election. In a way they were the anti water charges party and the party is dying when their issue is no longer current with the abolition of water charges (for now).

Almost identical to last week's poll. The political class have gone on their extended holidays and the pollsters should do the same. Even anoraks will be bored by them at this stage.

But wait.....what's this? SF NOT on 18%??? Shurely shome mishtake. Isn't it a statutory requirement at this stage that all Irish opinion polls must have SF on 18%?

Time for the Social Dems to go back into the Labour fold - two dead parties walking anyway - may as well go down as one

is he a leader of his so called party of one, will he be changed?
Personality cults tend to fall apart rather than change the "leader". TBH, I don't know. I think we can start ignoring them now.

That probably explains part of it. However, austerity is still affecting many people so it hasn't gone away as an issue. Even though the defendants were found not guilty, the court case showed the party in a very unflattering light.

I certainly won't mourn their demise but I do wonder if their behaviour has done long term damage to left wing politics in this country.

Is that a pathetic attempt to deflect attention from the shocking news that the 2% of the loonie left who abandoned Club Retard this time around didn't transfer their support to the professed "left wing" Ibrahim Halawa Supporters' Club?

I always wonder about their poll rating is it not nearly always between 18% and 20%. It been there give or take one or two every now and then for best part of four years. Only problem they seem to always under preform at election and come it at 13% or 14% like we saw at the last local and national elections.

As for PBP/AAA or what ever it is they call themselves, im getting the popcorn ready nothing like a left vs left infighting.

Someone was making the point recently that the three "establishment" parties (FG/FF/Lab) were below 50%.

Make that 66%.

Clearly the jump in support for the Labour Party is explained by the 3% margin of error in the poll which of course means that its on 4%. 1% for Solidarity/AAA/SWP/PBP/Socialist PArty/Whatever your having yourself means that on the same margin of error it is also on 4%.
Neck and neck so. Jobstown jump delivering big time for Paul Murphy who is surely a huge plus among the electorate.
