Poll exclusive: 66% in favour of National Government…

According to RTE, Brian Cowen has more bad news coming down the channel in the SBP’s latest Red C poll:

Support for Fine Gael increased by 2 percentage points to 33 per cent, Labour was up 2 to 19 per cent, the Green Party remains unchanged at 7 per cent, Sinn Féin is up 1 to 8 per cent while Independents remain unchanged at 10 per cent.

Interestingly, now the advantage is swinging to the opposition parties no one is talking about a government of national Unity. Yet Slugger has learned that in an unpublished poll at the end of last month conducted by Red C, 66% of the population were in favour of a grand coalition to take over the running of the country in what some have termed The Emergency. It’s not clear why the SBP decided not to use to the findings, nor whether they ran such a question this month (their site was not updated at the time of posting)…

Update: Erm, it was a Cedar Lounge rather than a Slugger Exclusive,,,
