Nightmare poll for Michael and his gang in Fianna Fáil.
The party that stands for nothing but seems to mouth about everything.

Sinn Féin need to replace Gerry and with Leo odds on to take over from Enda, we have Fianna Fáil consigned to the low 20's as a more permanent fixture.

they will have a bigger bounce next poll after over 100.000 watching the live debate on Facebook the last two nights. Two great replacements for Enda with Simon best on both debates.

Why the substantial difference in figures from only a few days ago. There's a variance of over five percent in some cases, and given we're in the close season (politically speaking), I can't see how the Leo/Simon show has caused a combined 12% drop in support for FF and SF. I think this one is an outlier, folks. Of course FG would be expected to have a bit of a bounce due to the coverage of the leadership race.

I don't think the ones on the indian subcontinent can vote.

I have to say Jim O'Callaghan has been quite a disappointed of late. He is all over the place on Noirin O'sullivan.

Bryan Dobson asked him why he would not support the no confidence SF motion in the commissioner, one of the reasons given was sure SF would then want his party to support any motion put forward.

It stank of amateurish and trying to have it both ways, surely Fianna Fáil are mature enough to chose to support a motion or reject it on its merits without playing the looking over their shoulder card.
In fairness to Dobson he called out O'Callaghan on this.

Fianna Fáil a party on the pitch trying to play every formation at the same time.

Interesting ..Im sure it will rattle ff a little but nothing major to see here ,Great poll for Enda in his final weeks as Taoiseach. He made FG the largest party and they are still there on his departure

When was the Poll taken?

Is the SF dip because of Manchester?
Nah, FG was seriously held back by Enda. SF will get quite the bounce when Gerry steps down.

Agreed, and FG will probably do better in the next poll when Leo is elected. But these are very abnormal circumstances so will be interesting to see what happens when things settle down.

FF may end up with a bit of a problem. Leo quite clearly attacking SF ( he can't lose any votes in that). But FF have to look over their shoulder at SF. They can't unequivocally agree with Leo's support for working people, and diss him at the same time.

But then, they've years of experience of facing both ways at once.

Mrbi says FF is on 27%
RedC say FF is on 21%.

Each poll is not incorrect as the gap is only 6% (or two margins of error).

Two Margins of Error? Sounds like a Fine Gael leadership contest. :)

As for RedC, it did itself no favours with that 80% likelihood to vote thing which left a lot of Bluebots in tears over not getting 60+ seats in the last GE. FG got a worse election to election loss than 2002.

So what you are implying is that FF in all likelihood at on 24%, assuming that both polls are equally 3% wrong. That's not great for FF either.
