    Default TV3 News: Norris early favourite for President, now gone?

    Apart from the party results, TV3 news also had a mention that David Norris was early favourite (20%) for President. However, when I re-checked the page (Dramatic political shifts shown by TV3/Millward Brown poll - TV3), this is gone. I presume I wasn't seeing things? The original text said:

    "Senator David Norris emerges as a clear early favourite for the presidency - 20% name him without any prompting. The two potential Labour party candidates, Fergus Finlay and Michael D. Higgins register 8% each revealing a strong Labour candidacy for the role once a single candidate emerges."

    I have the page still open from a while back. It said

    Senator David Norris emerges as a clear early favourite for the presidency - 20% name him without any prompting. The two potential Labour party candidates, Fergus Finlay and Michael D. Higgins register 8% each revealing a strong Labour candidacy for the role once a single candidate emerges.

    It's now finally up on the TV3 website:

    TV3 Poll shows support for Senator in Presidential race - TV3

    In the final part of the TV3/Millward Brown National Opinion Poll we asked who is favourite succeed Mary McAleese as President, how many favour a state visit by Queen Elizabeth and if Cardinal Brady still retains popular support.



    In terms of the Presidency:

    •Senator David Norris was named as preferred candidate by some 20% of those polled - making him the early favourite
    •Fergus Finlay and Michael D. Higgins also proved popular with 8% of the poll each

    Norris has to secure the support of 4 councils. How did Dana do that?

    This poll is certainly far too early to get excited about.

    Good, I love David Norris. Apart from that he is good looking, highly intelligent, and has a wonderful speaking voice. I would be proud to have him as our President, seeing as how we apparently need one, for some reason.

    He has about as much chance of parking his aras in the Vice Regal Lodge as Shirley Temple Bar has.

    Don't worry - it will never happen!

    People said we'd never have a women president when Mary Robinson was running for election.

    Never say never.

    MR had the Labour Party to fund her campaign and was most fortunate that Brain Lenihan put his foot in it when he did.

    If that tape had never surfaced she would never have made it.

    There is no one behind Norris as far as we know.

    How are you so sure? I know that when he sees my user name here that his palpitations will start, unless his memory has caved in. Who exactly are his campaign team, front and back seat?
