Starting today, IrishCentral, in conjunction with Amarach Research, is conducting the first ever poll of Irish Americans in a presidential election.

We are asking our readers to participate.

Amarach Research is a major Irish polling research firm which has worked with the Irish government among many other clients.

“This is an exciting project undertaken with Ireland’s premier research company,” said founder of IrishCentral Niall O’Dowd.

 “There has been much speculation both here and in Ireland how Irish Americans would vote in this election and this will give us a solid indication.”

“We are delighted to create this poll in conjunction with IrishCentral and its 1.5 million unique visitors every month,” said Michael Mcloughlin, Chief Executive of Amarach research. “It will give us invaluable insight into the Irish American mind set before this critical election.”

The poll is a simple series of brief questions that will take no more than five minutes to complete and asks which candidate, Mitt Romney or Barack Obama or other, that the person will support.

Results will be made available later this week and will be tabulated. There has never been a scientific poll of Irish Americans done in a presidential election, making this a first.

“We are urging all our readers to participate” said Niall O’Dowd, “This is an important insight into how Irish America is thinking about the most critical election of our times.”
