Irish Polling Report

A place to discuss Irish opinion polls

You wait ages for a decent poll…..

with 4 comments

…. and then two come along together. MRBI poll being released probably Thurs evening for publication on Friday morning in the Irish Times, and RedC in SBP being published Sunday (probably released on Saturday evening).

It’ll be the first MRBI using the new methodology, and given the closeness of the the times they are being taken, it will be very interesting to see how close the two sets of results are.

Also of interest will be, given they are reputable companies, whether they ask voting intention in the event that Lenihen (or Martin) were leader of FF. Would also like to see what percentage would expect an immediate GE in the event of Cowen being replaced.

FWIW, I think this’ll be FF down, but not as much as people are expecting. Expect a flurry of political activity in the next few days as politicians try to influence the outcomes.

  1. Third one:

    Millward/Brown for TV3:

    Lab 35, FG 30, FF 22, SF 4, GP 2, Ind 8.

    I assume the extra 1% is due to rounding rather than the job being subcontracted to “Quantum Research”.
