    Default FF support rises in new poll

    Tomorrow's poll in the Irish Examiner puts FF on 38%, PD's on 5%, Labour 12%, FG 24%, Greens 5%.

    Does this indicate that a third term is a feasible prospect?

    where did the other 16% go.

    What was SF on?
    The word 'politics' is derived from the word 'poly', meaning 'many', and the word 'ticks', meaning 'blood sucking parasites

    I prefer the Taylor Neslson Sofres one's myself. They're always consistent.

    its not that they are consistent - its that you have a consistant series by which to compare them.

    DId Lansdowne poll close to any recent election?

    ha,ha,ha-----im in stitches----no they wont be back for a third term at least not with Ahernia leading them.

    Im just amazed that after all thats happened there are still people out there who would even consider voting FF/PD---are they completly off their game or were they just being sarcastic when asked what way they intend voting.

    If this poll is correct then the electorate have become an incredibly confused bunch. While support for FF is up and they remain the largest party, there was also a very low level (37% I think) of satisfaction with the government. Basically what voters seem to be saying is that they're not satisfied with the government, but they'll vote for them anyway. Another interesting factor is the level of undecideds when measuring the level of satisfaction with the party leaders of FG and Labour. I don't have the figures in front of me but it looked like a large amount haven't made up their mind, or haven't heard of Rabbitte or Enda. If this is the case FG, Labour and the Greens (for they would probably be part of the alliance) need to put their faces out into the public a lot more than at present.
