(+/-) figures compared to last equivalent poll 4 months ago:

FF 33 (+6)
FG 25 (-4)
SF 20
Lab 6 (-2)
IA 5
Inds 4 (-2)
AAAPBP 3 (+1)
SD 2 (+1)
Greens 2

Poll taken February 6-16, 3% MoE.

Pressure mounts on Kenny as new poll shows Fine Gael haemorrhaging voters - Independent.ie
FG about average of other polls. FF and SF a bit on the high side. Following a change of leader, FG will temporarily pull level or ahead of FF before pattern reasserts itself. SF benefitting from being in the media due to assembly election I suspect.

I am really getting a kick out of seeing the Labour party on 6%.

A very interesting finding is that FF is least toxic of parties with only 21% saying they would never vote for them against 30%+ for FG and SF. That must be the first time ever that's happened given the traditional loathing of FF by non FFers.

I've anyways always mistrusted Milward brown. They tend to skew in favour of the big three, and aren't regular enough to test their accuracy.

Given that an election might not be too far off it is probably time to start paying attention to these polls again. FG sinking fast and Labour sunk and just getting nowhere.

FF and FG have together 58 % we know the next government, and this is the way its going to go for years to come.

Yes good point, and we will have fake posters up in the next few weeks.

Quite a long timeframe between the polls, and a long timeframe for the polling period itself. It'd be interesting to compare it with trends in more frequent polls over recent months.
Fairly consistent with 2017 trends for minor parties - AAA/PBP declining, SDs slightly up, Greens stable. Labour also averaging 6%,surprising perhaps that means a reduction here. FF now regularly in low 30s, FG and SF fluctuating within narrow margins, but generally mid-twenties and 15-20%.

FG, job after the next election will be to propping up FF in government, that deal has been done, so its simple Labour are gone, the indos will get a kicking, FF /FG dont want SF in government, well not SF, Gerry Adams in government and that is the way the game will play out until, Gerry Adams steps down.
