Gay Marriage: Newest Poll shows Yes side down 8% as No side starts to gain traction

In today’s Sunday Business Post, a Red C Poll is published that shows a significant lead for the Yes side, but a notable traction for the No.

Of those polled, 68% said they would vote Yes, 22% said they’d vote No while 10% remained on the fence.

The Poll shows a drop of almost 10% of those in favour of the referendum. The No side have started to battle their case hard in an effort to reel in the ever growing number of undecided voters.

Some interesting facts in the Poll suggest men are more likely to vote No while people under 21 are voting Yes. Those over 65 are overwhelmingly voting No.

Other key information states 25% if Yes voters still have reservations on part of the referendum, while 90% of No voters said they won’t change their mind between now and referendum day.

As May 22nd approaches, the campaign managers and teams know that it’s all to play for. A week, let alone almost four, is an eternity in politics, and while the posters and leaflets are distributed, it’ll be the live debates on TV and radio that people say will truly make a difference.
