Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil are neck-and-neck in the latest Red C poll.

The poll, published in this weekend’s Sunday Business Post, reveals that both parties hold 26 per cent of public support.

This represents one point rise for Fianna Fáil and a one point drop for Fine Gael since the last Red C poll held two weeks after the general election.

Support for Sinn Féin remains stable in the latest poll at 15 per cent while support for the Independent Alliance is down by one point to 4 per cent. Backing for the Independents in general is up by two points to 11 per cent.

Labour’s support has risen two points to 6 per cent, leaving it one point behind its general election result of 7 per cent.

The Anti-Austerity Alliance and People Before Profit grouping has risen by one point to 5 per cent, while the Social Democrats fell one point to 4 per cent.

The Green party dropped one point to 2 per cent, down from the 3 per cent it held during the general election, while Renua is down to 1 per cent.

The Red C poll is carried out through telephone interviews with a random sample of 1,007 adults aged over 18 from across the country.
