Fine Gael support rises in latest public opinion poll

A familiar enough leaderboard.

Fine Gael has enjoyed a rise in public opinion following the results of the latest poll conducted by Red C and the Sunday Business Post.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar's pledge to cut tax is said to be behind the public mood, as the Sunday Business Post reports an increase of one point to 34 per cent.

Fianna Fáil, meanwhile, has also seen a surge in support, rising by two points to 27 per cent in the poll.

Micheál Martin's party has been critical of Varadkar's tax-focused promises, while confidence and supply talks between both parties are ongoing.

Elsewhere in the poll, Sinn Féin is down by two points to 13 per cent, with Independents behind on 10 per cent having also dropped two points.

Renua remains the lowest-ranked party in the country with zero per cent of support registered by those polled.

The poll of 1000 adults was conducted by telephone between Thursday 15 November and Thursday 22 November.

The full breakdown is as follows:

Fine Gael 34 (+1)

Fianna Fáil 27 (+2)
