Today’s Independent is not happy reading for the Labour leader, Joan Burton.
A poll in her Dublin West constituency finds her struggling to hold on to her seat with the election just two weeks away.
The results are;
Leo Varadkar (FG) and Paul Donnelly (SF) on 20% each.
Jack Chambers is on 17% for Fianna Fáil and Ruth Coppinger is on 15% for the AAA.
Joan Burton trails on 10%.
Worth pointing out 14% of the electorate are still undecided but if Burton goes in this constituency, Labour TDs across Dublin will fall like dominoes on 26th February.
