Sinn Fein top Tele poll with 21% of vote…

Sinn Fein tops the BelTel poll… with 21% (a 1/5) of the electorate. Hmmm… Pre Ritchie SDLP is on 13% which is a nice squeeze that could lose them Assembly seats, but with what’s happening in Unionism get them an extra ministerial seat through d’hondt… The DUP is on 18%… The UUP is on 15%… Alliance is on 7%… And Jim Allister a more realistic 6%… PUP and the Greens pull up the rear with 3% each…

Adds: there’s a lot of people not declaring… so we might expect that to add a slight benefit to the TUV… Also worth adding is that polls in NI come few and far between and are notoriously poor at replicating reliable results…
