Sol/PBP 3 +2
Ind All 3 nc

SocDem 1 nc
Ind 8 -4

Seems like the Centre is the place to be these days. Loony fringe getting marginalised on these numbers.

Looking like either Fianna Fáil or Fine Gael will lead the next government.

Bit of a shock, that.

It seems Sol/PBP got most of it.
Nope. :) It is rarely that simple. Labour's support is largely based on floating FF/FG support. The support of small/Margin Of Error parties like Labour is very difficult to measure with small sample sizes.

Significant increases for the Big Two.

They're getting just under two thirds of the total vote between them.

Seems like people are inclining back towards the two main stalwart parties.

Uncertainly over Brexit, Catalonia etc making people want to stick with what they know?

Yes but how many seats will Labour get on 3% and how many will SF get on 14%?
Both will get less than they have today. Bad poll for both.

Economic recovery. People see benefits to the status quo of the centre and are less inclined to populist chancers.

Labour may be wiped out at the next GE based on these percentages. SF won't.
I couldn't really care less what happens to Labour! SF as the putative alternative are now a very long way back in the rear view mirror of the Big Two. I suspect people are looking at their endless posturing up North and are heartily sick of them

Holy smothering f---k. The irony is that B&A generally overstates SF if anything. They'll be quiet tonight. Next govt on these figs would be another FG + Oths, though FF could try something similar too if there were another gene poolers left.

That's SF's new strategy.... "Don't get wiped out"
They adopted it from their armed wing.

1970s: united 32 county socialist republic!
1980s: errrr, don't get wiped out
