Latest opinion poll shows Fianna Fáil take 12-point lead over Fine Gael

The poll also shows the declining popularity of Labour and People Before Profit.

The Sunday Times/Behaviour & Attitude opinion poll was published today, and the results suggest that Fianna Fáil have taken a 12-point lead over Fine Gael.

Fianna Fáil have gained five points since the last poll, while Fine Gael have lost seven, marking the lowest ever standing for the party in this survey.

The full opinion poll results are as follows:

  • Fianna Fáil 32 (+5)
  • Fine Gael 20 (-7)
  • Sinn Féin 19 (-1)
  • Greens 7 (+1)
  • Labour 4 (-2)
  • Independent Alliance 3 (+1)
  • Solidarity-PBP 2 (-1)
  • Social Democrats 1
  • Renua 1 (+1)
  • Inds and others 10

The poll of 923 voters, with a margin of error of 3.3%, was taken in the run-up to the Taoiseach dissolving the Dáil.

This last week alone has seen the planned RIC commemorations that Fine Gael had organised later cancelled due to widespread backlash, the since-deleted social media video depicting Fianna Fail TDs running around Dublin city looking for policies set to Benny Hill music, and the homelessness crisis continues to spiral after a man was left with life-altering injuries when his tent was moved while he was sleeping in it.
