Support for the Labour party and Sinn Féin has fallen, according to two opinion polls to be published in tomorrow's Sunday papers.
1,000 people were surveyed as part of the Red C opinion poll for the Sunday Business Post, conducted between Monday and Wednesday of this week.
When the undecided voters are excluded, support for Fine Gael is unchanged at 28%. However coalition partners, Labour, dropped three points to 7%.
Fianna Fáil are up one point to 20%.
Sinn Féin stands at 18%, a drop of three points.
The biggest shift in support is the five point increase for Independents and smaller parties.
That group is on 27% according to this poll.
A separate nationwide Sunday Independent/Millward Brown also indicates support for Labour and Sinn Féin has declined.
Excluding those who were undecided, Fine Gael stand at 29%, up four points from the last comparable poll in April, Labour are down two points to 6%, Fianna Fáil stand at 23% up four points, Sinn Féin stands at 21% down three points and independents and smaller parties stand at 21%, down two points.
