“They’re traitors” – Sinn Féin support looks to be in freefall ahead of June votes




Recent surveys show that support for Sinn Féin is still declining ahead of the June municipal and European elections, reports Breaking News.

In the most recent Irish Times/Ipsos B&A survey, support for Mary Lou McDonald’s party fell by five points, levelling the playing field with Fine Gael.

While Sinn Féin continues to lead competing parties in all polls, the party’s downward trajectory this year has made reelection to the existing Government a possibility, reports Breaking News.

Based on an average of previous surveys, you can find the most recent estimate of popular support for the major political parties below.

With Simon Harris becoming leader, Fine Gael has experienced a little increase in support.

Following a decline in the polls under Leo Varadkar’s direction, Mr. Harris became leadership of Fine Gael in April, with support currently averaging around 21%.

On March 22, 2020, a general election will need to be conducted in the event that the Coalition of Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil, and the Green Party serves out its whole mandate, reports Breaking News.

Since the autumn, support for independent candidates has increased dramatically.

The anticipated support for Independent candidates and other parties rose by about five percentage points from the end of October 2023 and May 2024.

Sinn Féin is still most likely to have the majority in the next Dáil, notwithstanding the recent change, reports Breaking News.
