Voters leaving government parties

The alternative coalitions are polling neck and neck, according to the latest Irish Times /TNS mrbi survey which shows a decline of five percentage points in the combined support for both Government parties since December. Fianna Fáil and the Progressive Democrats are now just one point ahead of the Fine Gael-Labour alternative.

That's according to today's Irish Times. Support for the PDs is at an all time low proving that while the PDs love their leader (he is up six points among PD supporters) no-one else does.

The shine too is coming off the Teflon Taoiseach as despite rallying around him when he cried and told us all about all the money he took, people are deserting FF.

However Labour and Fine Gael have not benefited from this decline as the support has gone to alternatives like the Greens and Sinn Fein.

It is up to Labour and FG to catch these voters and bring them back to the fold.

However it increasingly does look like Labour, FG and the Greens will form the next government.kick it on
