Two new polls this weekend show very mixed results for the main Government party.

The Sunday Times/Behaviour & Attitudes poll shows a very sharp drop in support for Fine Gael, although the party fares much better in the Sunday Independent/Millward Brown poll.

Labour is still polling in single figures in both surveys.

The Sunday Times/ Behaviour & Attitudes poll shows Fine Gael at 21%, down nine percentage points compared to the previous poll in February.

Labour are unchanged at 9%, Fianna Fáil are up one point to 20%, with Sinn Féin also on 20%, representing a two point increase.

Support for Independents and Others stands at 30%, a six point increase.

Compared to its last poll, also conducted in February, The Sunday Independent/Millward Brown findings show support for Fine Gael has increased two points to 29%.

Labour stands at 6%, a fall of two points.

Fianna Fáil is up one point to 22%.

Support for Sinn Féin is down two points to 20% while Independents and Others are up one point to 23%.

Both polls reflect the results after the ‘Don't Knows’ are excluded. In the Sunday Times poll they stand at 24% and at 34% in the Sunday Independent poll.
