Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil have both made gains in the latest political opinion poll.

The Behaviour and Attitudes survey for today's Sunday Times shows Fine Gael up three points to 34%.

The poll of a thousand voters was taken was taken between October 26th and last Tuesday - only days before Leo Varadkar's first Fine Gael national conference as Taoiseach.

Fianna Fáil is still behind, but up four points to 31%.

Sinn Féin is down five points to 14%, while unaligned Independents are down four points to 8%.

The Independent Alliance is unchanged at 3%, Labour is down a point to 3%, while Solidarity / People Before Profit are up two at 3%.

There's no change for the Green party on 2% or the Social Democrats on 1%.

Stephen O'Brien, Political Editor with the Sunday Times, observed: "[There's] a very significant move across the board, from the anti-establishment side of the Dáil to the established parties, Fine Gael & Fianna Fáil."

He added: "Sinn Féin has been remarkably steady over the last six opinion polls [...] Now it's dropped by five points. At the same time, there's been a very significant six point drop in Gerry Adams' personal support - and he is now by a distance the leader with the lowest satisfaction rating."
