Two new opinion polls suggest that Fianna Fáil support has stabilised since the party changed its leader - although it remains in third place, just ahead of Sinn Féin.

The polls, for tomorrow's Sunday Business Post and Sunday Independent, indicate that Fine Gael remains on course to lead the next government, and that a coalition with Labour would have a comfortable majority.

The Red C poll for the Sunday Business Post shows Fianna Fáil at 16% - up two points since the last Red C poll for Paddy Power at the start of the month.

Fine Gael support is down two to 33%, Labour unchanged at 21%, the Greens down two to 2%, Sinn Féin is down one to 13%, and Independents and Others up three to 15%.

The Millward Brown Lansdowne poll for the Sunday Independent is almost exactly the same, apart from putting Labour three points higher, and Sinn Féin three points lower.

That poll also shows that just 20% of voters say Micheal Martin's election as leader would make them more likely to vote for Fianna Fáil.
