Meanwhile back at the ranch

It seems that the thought of “losing Bertie” has restored the coalition government’s opinion poll fortunes. In the latest poll by the Irish Times Fianna Fail jumped to 39% (up from 31%) and the PD’s to 4% (up from 3%). Labour, Fine Gael, Sinn Fein and independents all dropped. The Greens were the only opposition party to see some growth up 1% to 6%.
