John Drennan, who writes for the Sunday Independent, spoke to irishsmokefill last week, about the latest Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll. He said that the more the voters see of Sinn Fein, the less they like them. The party dropped four points to 20%, in the poll.
“Fianna Fail are half way there now, they started off at the General Election on 16.8%, they have got to 21%, and they are half way to where they have to be, to be a 54 seat party,” said Drennan. “Labour is on 12%, which is good for them, because their support is concentrated in Dublin. That’s a good result for Labour.”
