Over half of people think the Minister for Justice should not resign from her position, ahead of the Sinn Féin no-confidence motion in her next week following the Dublin riots.

That's the finding of a new Ireland Thinks poll for the Sunday Independent, which shows 38 per cent are satisfied with Helen McEntee's performance as Justice Minister.


While 49 per cent are not happy with Minister McEntee’s performance. However, her popularity has still increased by nine points since the last poll.

When it comes to the parties, the opinion poll shows Sinn Féin’s support has dropped three points to 28 per cent.

Fine Gael is on 21 per cent, unchanged, Fianna Fáil is up one to 19 per cent and Labour has risen by one to 4 per cent.

The Greens have fallen one to 3 per cent and Independents and others have gone up by three to 14 per cent.

The Social Democrats are unchanged on 5 per cent, Solidarity-People Before Profit are also the same on 4 per cent, and Aontú are on 3 per cent unchanged.
