A new opinion poll puts Sinn Féin’s public support at 35%

A new opinion poll by Behaviour & Attitudes/Sunday Times has put public support for Sinn Féin at 35%, increasing by 10 percent since the General Election. Fianna Fáil have fallen by two points to 20% in that time and Fine Gael have fallen by three points to 18%.

Here’s how the parties are polling currently.

The poll also asked respondents their preferred political leader and Sinn Féin’s Mary Lou McDonald was the most popular figure with a satisfaction of 53%, up 13 points on the previous poll in the series.

Fianna Fáil’s Micheál Martin is the next most popular leader with a satisfaction rating of 31% (-15) followed by Labour’s Brendan Howlin 29% (-9) and then Leo Varadkar 27% (-8).

Since the general election, Sinn Féin conducted a series of meetings among their supporters throughout the country and has been attempting to build support to lead a government. McDonald yesterday warned Green Party leader Eamon Ryan that going into government with Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael would be a “mistake”.
