Fianna Fáil the most popular party in second election opinion poll suggests
Fianna Fáil would be the most popular party if a second election were held a new opinion poll suggests.
It holds a three-point lead over Fine Gael in the Sunday Times' poll, which also shows falling satisfaction in Enda Kenny.
This poll, with a margin of error of 3.1%, was taken by Behaviour & Attitudes over the 11 days up to last Wednesday.
It shows if a second election were held over that time, Fianna Fáil would overtake Fine Gael to become the most popular party, with 27% of support.
That is a two-point gain since February's election, while Fine Gael is down three points, to 24%.
Sinn Féin is up two points to 17%, while the Independent Alliance would be the other victors at 8%, compared to 4% at the election.
However, there would be losses for unaligned independents, down three points to 10%, and for Labour and the Social Democrats - down to 4% and 2% respectively.
The poll also shows that Micheál Martin is the most popular party leader with a satisfaction rating of 42% whereas Enda Kenny's is just 27%.
