Two new polls out today - the B&A poll is being discussed elsewhere but I think this is worth a new thread - if not, feel free to merge etc.

B&A/Sunday Times party support.

Fine Gael: 26% (-4%)
Labour: 11% (-1%)
Fianna Fáil: 24% (+2%)
Sinn Féin: 19% (+5%)
Independents/others: 21% (-1%)

RedC/Sunday Business Post party support.

Fine Gael: 28% (no change)
Labour: 11% (-3%)
Fianna Fáil: 21% (+1)
Sinn Féin: 19% (+2%)
Independents/others: 21% (no change)

Two polls show fall in Government party support - RTÉ News

The Sunday Business Post

I've put this in the election forum as I would rather discuss the party support figures in the polls and not get bogged down in the abortion debate - I'm happy to change that if people think it's a good idea.

So FG/Labour are trending down and SF/FF are on the up!

There is a quiet crisis in Irish politics. People will have no stomach to vote for any established party. There is definitly room for a new party.

Good heavens.

How are FF managing to claw their way back:shock:
FF,s best tactic, just let FG make a bollix of everything.

Seriously though I thought up to now, everything considered, the FG vote was holding up well enough, but these figures will really concern them.

Ahhhhh that old gag!

If FF can make a comeback I bet Gary Glitter will feel much more confident about launching a successful comeback tour:)

SF are now rising quicker that FF in the polls again, in both polls they have risen more. I wonder could the border poll launch have anything to do with it?

At least one new party. I reckon we need about three, possibly four new political parties.

Both set of polls fairly similar. Although both polls show a combined FF and SF have greater support than FG/LAB government. Interesting.

Red C is probably more accurate. FF at 24% seems improbable to say the least. Interesting that both have Labour at 11%.

Unfortunately its not will FF make a comeback, its how much will they claw back at the next election.

Remember the Irish electorate have the collective memory capacity of a bloody house-fly.

Only one poll counts and it'll happen in 2014, or sooner at this rate.

FF 24 OR 21%??? Beyond depressing. We're doomed to repeat this boom bust cycle for the rest of our days. It's like supporting cancer.

It's all over Flav - better that you face the reality now while you're still ever so slightly ahead rather than waiting for FG to actually fall below FF.

The B&A figures on the question of legislating for abortion are interesting and might serve to give a little heart to the FG boys and girls.
