There was good news for the Fine Gael party this party weekend as a new poll has revealed they are still the most favoured party in the country.
According to the latest Sunday Times/Behaviour & Attitudes poll Leo Varadkar’s party has opened up an eight point lead on their nearest rivals Fianna Fáil.
The poll which comes ahead of next month’s crucial Budget shows that Fine Gael are now at 33%, up four points from July.
However the latest poll makes for bad reading for Michael Martin and his colleagues as Fianna Fail are now at 25%, falling five points.
Meanwhile there was an increase in support for Sinn Fein as they moved up one point to put them at 19%.
The poll also showed an increase in support the Independents who are at 10 %, after moving up one point.
It was a mixed bag for the rest as the Independent Alliance lost a point falling to just 3%, whilst there was no change for Brendan Howlin and
Labour who reman at 5%.
Although Solidarity/PBP did gain support and move up a point to 1%, whilst there was no chang for the Social Democrats or the
Greens who remain at 1% and 2% respectively.
