A new Millward Brown poll in Sunday’s Independent has found that only 11 percent of people polled would choose a Fine Gael / Labour coalition should a general election be called.

TheJournal.ie reports on the findings of the poll, which also showed that a proposed Fianna Fáil/Sinn Féin coalition was backed by an equal 11 percent of people.

At 9 percent, a Fianna Fáil/Independents coalition was the next most popular. A Fine Gael/Fianna Fáil pairing came in next with with 7 percent of the vote.

Fine Gael/Independents, Fine Gael/Sinn Féin and a Fianna Fáil/Labour coalition possibility each came in with 6 percent of the vote.

22 percent of those polled, however, were overall undecided about which coalition they would back. An additional 22 percent responded by saying ‘other’ or ‘none of the above.’

39 percent of those polled said that they do not believe the current government will run a full term, while a nearby 35 percent said they believed it would. 15 percent weren’t sure, and another 10 percent said ‘it depends.’

The majority of those polled - 60 percent - said that introducing a property tax would have a negative impact on property prices. 26 per cent believed it would make no difference, while a further 14 per cent did not know.

Just over a third of the respondents, 34 percent, said they were worried about their jobs. Another 14 percent said they were worried about losing their home.

Over half, 53 percent, said they were worried about having to reduce their current standard of living.
