The latest Sunday Business Post poll shows a drop in support for Fianna Fail (33%), Fine Gael (25%) and Sinn Fein (8%), all down 2% points. However, the “junior” partners of the Big Two seem to be the beneficiaries with both Labour (14%) and the Progressive Democrats (4%) up 2%. The FF drop jars with the Irish Examiner poll, however, Bertie’s Tribunal woes may have contributed to the difference. The public response to a McDowell leadership seems to be positive. UPDATE (Forgot a hat tip to El Matador)
