So here's another one of these with FF in the ascendancy. This one includes Renua at 1% and others being independents.

Still no Mary Lou bounce and that dramatics about mortgages may even become a FF election strategy!

And the obvious joke: How many RedC friends and family were polled? :)
RedC are often held up as the standard bearer when it comes to political polling yet have time and time again got it wrong on the big day. They along with every other poll should only be read for the entertainment value for the resulting political drama and predictions that come out of them.

Mainly by gobshítes and the people who believe the media is objective and balanced. That 80% likelihood to vote thing prior to the last GE was a laugh. A poll is only a snapshot of public opinion at a particular point in time.

+ or - 3% can make a big difference.

Eg

Poll
Party A 30%
Party B 30%

Election Day
Party A 33%
Party B 27%

Still the trends are important.

This poll tell us SF wont be the largest party anytime soon.

In Dec 2016 the shinners were telling us:
FF and FG will have to go together.
Then SF will become at least the second largest party in the next election if not the largest. petunia

It took a while for the Leo bounce too on these polls.
She has been leader-in-waiting for years and has effectively been acting leader for a few months now. The fact that not a single poll since her coronation, or during the lead-up to it, showed any boost for SF (particularly with FF at best becalmed) is significant, whether SF like it or not.

Who cares? We have already discovered that Fg directly pay newspapers for journos to be postive about them, so I don't see why their polls should be any different. All spin and BS as far as i can see.

Sinn Fein need to reinvent themselves. Sinn Fein are now seen as poster boys for travellers and Islamic loons. The mainstream press always gave Sinn Fein positive spin and publicity when SF reps are advocating for Travellers and refugees/illegal immigrants, this is one way of damaging Sinn Fein.

SF should be concerned, they've had a good couple of weeks. Change in leadership, Mary Lou has had some good media appearances and they actually come out of the NI talks looking like the reasonable ones yet they are down.

So when SF were hitting the 20% mark in said polls, what were the media at then?? SF have become Labour mark 2 and voters are not falling for their liberal ************************e, simple as!

Now now. These threads are a form of addiction for some and I'm just providing a public service here! They do, however, wander off on all manner of, generally more interesting, tangents, once the results have been "carefully examined".
