Two polls suggest Government support remains the same as previous opinion pollsSaturday 22 February 2014 23.15
Two opinion polls suggest recent controversies over claims made by a Garda Whistleblower and the alleged surveillance of the offices of the Garda Ombudsman Commission have had little impact Government support.
The Government parties have gained in one poll and a second poll shows little or no change.
They are under siege politically - but people are not making any big judgments so far.
Indeed the Sunday Business Post / Red C poll, taken earlier this week shows Fine Gael at 29%, up 2 compared a poll last month.
The Labour Party too are on the rise at 11% also up two.
Fianna Fáil is suggested to be at 22% are down one.
Sinn Féin stay the same at 16%.
While Independents and Others at 22% are down three.
In a Sunday Times/ Behaviour & Attitudes poll conducted between 11-19 February a largely similar pattern has been suggested.
Fine Gael is at 30%, exactly where they were at in December.
Labour support is at 9% down two.
Fianna Fáil support is indicated to be at 19% a drop of two points.
The poll indicates that Sinn Féin have 18% support that is up three points.
Support for Independents and Others is at 24%, it stays the same.
