New polls show conflicting results for coalition
Two new opinion polls to be published tomorrow show conflicting results for the coalition parties.
A RED C survey for the Sunday Business Post shows Fine Gael and Labour losing five points - effectively wiping out increased popularity with the public after the bailout exit.
This poll puts Fine Gael on 27%, down two points but remaining the most popular in the country.
Labour's loss of three points to 9% returns party support to single figures.
Independents now have the second largest chunk of support with voters - up three points to 25%.
Fianna Fáil gains one percentage point to 23% and Sinn Féin also goes up one to 16%..
However a second poll by Millward Brown for the Sunday Independent ells a very different story.
Here Fine Gael and Labour both go up three points each to 30% and 12% respectively.
Fianna Fáil also goes up two percentage points to 26%, but Sinn Féin goes down a whopping five points to 16% and Independents and Others drop three to 16%.
