A new opinion poll shows that despite the controversy over George Lee's resignation from Fine Gael, the party has widened its lead over Fianna Fáil.

The Millward Brown IMS poll in today's Irish Independent also shows that just 10% of voters are satisfied with the Government's performance.

Fianna Fáil support is up two to 27% and Fine Gael is up by four points to 34%.

Labour and the Greens both drop three points to 19% and 2% respectively, while Sinn Féin gains one to 8% and Independents are unchanged at 10%.
