    Default Cork SC - FG Poll

    FF shaky in key district, says FG poll - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

    FF's support is now gauged at just 22pc, with FG rated at 40pc and Labour at 26pc.

    FG took two seats -- Simon Coveney and Deirdre Clune -- while Labour won back a seat with Ciaran Lynch.

    Now, the FG poll indicates that the Labour Party has a chance of making history by taking a second seat in the key Cork constituency, with FF facing the threat of holding just one.

    Mr Martin looks set to take the third seat, with his colleague Mr McGrath (8pc) facing a desperate battle to hold his.

    He is running almost 4pc behind Labour's Cork County Council member, Cllr Paula Desmond, who was last week added to the party's two-person CSC ticket.

    Another problem for FF is that FG is also expected to run a powerful third candidate, Senator Jerry Buttimer (8pc), who narrowly missed out on taking a Dail seat in 2007.

    The poll as written is inconsistent. We are told that FG are on 40% and that Coveney topped the poll on 15% but with Buttimer on 8% that leaves Deirdre Clune on 17%??

    Why would they release this? Very dubious.

    IF that poll were accurate there would be no argument on the destination of the last seat. It would go to Paula Desmond.

    While it's a party poll , only 500 polled and we could be a while from an election ( though I'd say we'll have one early in new year ) , it still has to be disappointing news for Buttimer. One FF seat only now looks the likely outcome.
