Fianna Fail move alongside Fine Gael at top of latest opinion poll
Enda Kenny’s popularity crashes as government parties fall
A Millward Brown poll for the Sunday Independent newspaper has Enda Kenny’s level on 27 per cent with the party that collapsed at the last election.
But the proportion of undecided voters remains high at 33 per cent as Ireland’s economic woes continue to take their toll.
The paper does report that when undecided voters are excluded, support for Fine Gael is up four points at 27 per cent since the last Sunday Independent poll a fortnight ago.
Junior coalition partner Labor is down one point to 11 per cent since the last poll with Fianna Fáil up one, to 27 per cent.
Support for Gerry Adams and Sinn Féin is down two to 17 per cent with those prepared to vote for Independents and Others also down one to 18%.
Worryingly for Irish Prime Minister Kenny, support for his government is also suffering in the opinions polls.
A massive 74 per cent of those canvassed said they were dissatisfied with how the Government is running the country.
Just 18 per cent said that they are satisfied with how the country is run and 14 per cent of those polled said that they believed that Labor should continue with current Government policy.
The news was no better for Kenny on a personal level as 65 per cent said that they were dissatisfied with Kenny’s leadership while 70 per cent claimed that they were dissatisfied with Eamon Gilmore’s leadership of the Labor Party. Only 15 per cent of those polled believe Gilmore should remain as leader.
Although support for Fianna Fail is up, leader Micheál Martin’s popularity is down 53 per cent of people unhappy with him, up 47 per cent from a fortnight ago.
Millward Brown director Paul Moran commented on the results of is company’s latest poll for the Sunday Independent.
He said: “The elephant in the room is the continuing swathe of undecideds.”
The report adds this group seems to have taken out its anger on Labor which is now down eight points on its result in the General Election of February 2011.
