Red C Poll in Sunday Business Post

Fianna Fail 24% (21-27%)
Fine Gael 31% (28 – 34)
Labour 23% (20 – 26%)
Sinn Fein 10%(7-13)
Green 3%
Others 9% (6-12%)

If it is statistically to presume a Gaussian distribution, the +/-3% 95%
confidence intervals are shown. This shows Labour and Fianna Fail equal
with Fine Gael a little ahead and Sinn Fein and independents on
significant numbers.
The Red C poll has a better record for accuracy of outcome than the
Millward poll from TV3 earlier this week.

Support for FF remains steady – poll

Saturday, 25 September 2010 18:02

A new opinion poll suggests that support for Fianna Fáil is holding steady,
while Fine Gael remains the most popular party.

The Red C poll in tomorrow’s Sunday Business Post also shows Labour support
down since June, in contrast to another national opinion poll just two days

Thursday’s Millward Brown Lansdowne poll put the party in first place.
However, Red C found Labour support had dropped four points since June, to
23%, a point behind Fianna Fáil.

Support for Fianna Fáil is unchanged, indicating that the controversy over
the Taoiseach’s Morning Ireland interview has had little impact on voting

Fine Gael will be pleased with this poll – although they are down two
points since June, they are in a commanding lead, with the support of 31%
of voters.

The greens gain one to three, Sinn Féin are up two to ten, and Independents
and others increase by three to nine.

Only 19% of voters say they have confidence in the Taoiseach, compared to
64% who do not and 17% who do not know, although a majority say a change in
leader would not make them more likely to vote for Fianna Fáil.
