    Default Red C poll out this Sunday

    Earlier today I was contacted by the Red C polling company.

    The questions asked were something like this:

    If there were to be a GE tomorrow which political party would you vote for?
    How positive are you that you'd vote ? (out of ten)
    Who did you vote for at last GE and 2007 GE?
    How would you rate current party leaders? (out of ten)

    Should Abortion on demand be permitted? Agree Strongly, Agree Slightly or Disagree Strongly, Disagree Slighty or Don't Know.

    Which option would be the best? Abortion on Demand, Legislate for X or Legislate but not for suicide?

    Any predictions of what party support will be ? (%)

    Since a General Election is so far away, any questions on party support are barely relevant.

    The abortion questions may be more relevant.
    Sometimes there is very little between historical and hysterical. One passes for the other. In time, the former remains forever, the latter is quickly replaced...

    Indeed! That will not stop the rush to this thread though with pages of pages of posters giving absolute opinions about the electorate both before and after the opinion poll!

    Awesome. Now we get to speculate on what it will say.

    It'll say that you clearly have too much time on your hands and need to stop posting on P.ie!

    This is the first poll after the budget. Should be interesting. If it does not show a labour drop then I would be highly skeptical of them "going the way of the PDs and greens" as everyone on this site has been saying for the last while.

    HBAP has been consistently right on that, to the extent that Labour have polled in the 12-16% range since the GE, so the party were merely returning to pre-'08 norms. As for FG, 28% was rock-bottom of their recent trends, but hard to see what positive news will return them above 30% other than the last poll being a notable outlier.
    My political compass:
    Economic Left/Right: -5.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.64

    Labour would be delighted with 13%. They've been knocking around 14% for a while now. Even 12% would be tolerable. It would have to be single digits before the alarm bells go off.

    I predict that there will be ~20% support for abortion on demand.
