Support for Sinn Féin and Labour falls in new Sunday Times survey
A new poll has found that Fianna Fáil was the most popular party in the run-up to last week's budget announcement.
The survey by Behaviour and Attitudes for the Sunday Times puts Micheál Martin's party on 30% (up two points) with Fine Gael trailing behind on 26% (up three).
Many of the other opposition parties have fallen in popularity, by contrast:
The Independent Alliance remains unchanged on 4%, the Workers' Party is on 3% (up two), the Greens are on 2%(unchanged) and the AAA-PBP is also on 2% (down two).
Renua is up one point to 1%, while support for the SocDems is down one to 0%.
The poll was taken between October 1st and 12nd, leading up to and immediately after the budget announcement.
It was conducted on a sample of 917 eligible Irish voters, with a 3.3% margin for error.
The last comparable survey was carried out from September 4th and 14th.
