Support for both Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil has dropped in the latest political opinion poll.

However, Sinn Féin, Labour, Independents and the Social Democrats are all up slightly in the latest Behaviour and Attitudes survey for the Sunday Times.

Fine Gael is down two percentage points to 27% while Fianna Fáil is down three to 25%.

The survey of 923 people, carried out between the  November 1 and 12, takes in the first few days of the Lorraine Clifford Lee Twitter scandal.

According to its results, Fine Gael remains the most popular party in the country, however, the satisfaction rating for Taoiseach and party leader Leo Varadkar down 2% to 43%.

Support for Micheál Martin has also fallen to 44%.

Meanwhile, Sinn Féin is up a point to 17% and may be hoping for a further boost following this weekend's Ard Fheis.

Labour is up one to 6%, the same as the unchanged Green Party.

The Independent Alliance doubles its support to 4%.

The Social Democrats are up one to 2%, Solidarity People Before Profit are down one to 2%.
