So with recent polls showing only a gap of 3% between FF/FG/SF and ~20% of voters undecided the political future of this country is far from certain with no one party dominating, does it open the door to SF and Mary Lou as a future Taoiseach?
I recently tweeted @AskPaddyPower where you can ask for specific odds and they replied with odds of 8/1 (also had Pearse Doherty as finance minister before 2020 @ 20/1). Now given SF's rise in the polls from just under 10% in 2011 to 21% at the time of posting is there a distinct possibility this could happen?
I personally think so. Next time round a FF/FG coalition looks likely and a term as the largest opposition party could well see SF and Mary Lou (assuming Adams has left) as potential leaders in government in two terms time.
