Another joke poll out from Quantum Research today.

Readers will be well aware of Quantum’s record from

this, this, and this.

This one builds on the Sindo’s campaign for a national govt, claiming about 80% in favour of a ‘consensus’ on the 4-year plan.

34% is the figure they propose are calling for an election before the budget, 31% immediately afterwards (how that would work, given it takes 3 months to pass the Finance Act that gives it legislative effect isn’t explained…) and the other 35% are happy to see it run it’s full term.

Curiously, it appears that 0% are unsure…… Very decisive bunch being polled this month ….

There’s also a lot of quite amusingly made up right-wing figures of what “the people” want in the budget – welfare cuts, more tax for lower paid, and PS cuts. The latter is amusingly messed up, as they claim that 73% favour compulsory redundancies in the PS, but barely half (54%) support the less radical solution of a 3rd round of paycuts.

Maybe the memo wasn’t very clearly worded ….

Also a load of made up quotes which are a poorly disguised attempt to lend support to the views of their paymasters.

As I said on p.ie, I’d love to watch a Primetime investigation into Quantum.

Anyways, roll on the next (real) poll – as noted in the linked posts above, these tend to yield very different figures.
