Fianna Fáil and Sinn Féin tied for top spot, opinion poll suggests


Support for Sinn Féin has increased once again according to a new opinion poll, putting the party in joint first place alongside Fianna Fáil. 

The Business Post/Red C poll has Sinn Féin up five points at 24%, Fianna Fáil on 24% and Fine Gael on 21%.

This poll of 1,000 voters follows on from yesterday’s Panelbase poll for The Times that saw support for Sinn Féin jump ahead of Fine Gael for the first time this general election campaign and only trailing Fianna Fáil by two points.

With less than one week until polling day, Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil are both down by two points respectively on the last comparable poll earlier this month.
