There has been a slump in support for the Labour Party, an opinion poll for the Sunday Times suggests.

The survey of voters by Behaviour and Attitudes also shows that Fianna Fáil remains the party with most support while there were gains for Fine Gael and the Independent Alliance.

When a sample of likely voters were asked who they would most likely back in a general election, just 3% said Labour. This is a drop of two points, down from the last poll which had Labour support at 5%.

Even allowing for the 3% margin of error and the poor polling predictions in the US presidential election this week, these findings are likely to worry the party.

Fianna Fáil is leading the other parties with its support unchanged at 30%.

A two-point gain for Fine Gael sees them climb to 28%.

Another part of the minority Government, the Independent Alliance increased support too. The Alliance is up one point to 5%.

Sinn Féin is unchanged on 17% support.

The survey was carried out over nine days up to last Wednesday.

The AAA-PBP is up one point to stand at 3%. Unaligned independents are unchanged on 11%. There was also no change for the Green Party support which is gauged at 2%.
