Poll finds Government support remains steadySaturday 26 October 2013 22.54
A new opinion poll has found little change in support for the Government parties despite the controversy over some of the measures in Budget 2014.
The Sunday Business Post/Red C poll, to be published tomorrow, also found that a majority of voters think the Budget was unfair.
The poll, in which over 1,000 voters were questioned, was conducted between Monday and Wednesday last, a few days after the announcement of the Budget.
The main findings on party support are: Fine Gael are at 29%, up two points, Labour are at 9%, down one point, Fianna Fáil are unchanged at 23%, Sinn Féin are also unchanged at 17%, while
Independents and Others are down one point to 22%.
Asked was the Budget fair, 59% said it wasn’t, with 39% saying it was.
