Sinn Féin’s support grows and party remains Ireland’s most popular

DUBLIN: Sinn Féin is the most popular political party in Ireland, according to the latest political opinion poll. Mary Lou McDonald’s party is 10 points ahead of their close rival, Fine Gael. The ‘victory’ comes just weeks before the expected by-election in Dublin Bay South. Sinn Féin’s popularity was revealed in a recent Behaviour and Attitudes poll for The Sunday Times.

The poll shows that all three Government parties have lost support. Fine Gael’s popularity has dropped four points to 24%, while Fianna Fáil’s popularity has declined from 22 to 20%, and the Green Party’s popularity has declined one point to four percent. Meanwhile, Sinn Féin’s popularity rose to 34% from 30%.

The previous poll had suggested that the Government parties Fine Gael and the Green Party, would receive small ‘vaccine bonus’. However, no change was seen in the polls this time.

The latest poll, conducted between May 27 and June 8, is estimated to have a margin of error of 3.3%.

The Labour Party’s support fell one point to 3%, while the Social Democrats gained two points to 4%. Solidarity People Before Profit and Aontu support remains unchanged at one per cent. Independent politicians won nine percent of the vote.
