The results of a new opinion poll suggests that the outcome of another general election would be largely the same for most of the political parties.

The Sunday Business Post RED C poll of more than 1,000 voters between Monday and Thursday found there would only be slight gains for the big parties if an election was called soon.

Compared to the General Election, Fine Gael support rose one point to 27%.

Fianna Fáil support also rose by one point to 25%.

Sinn Féin also saw a one-point increase in support in this poll - bringing it to 15%.

Labour support fell by three points to 4% but the Independent Alliance's support increased by one point to 5%.

The Social Democrats are also on 5%, that is up two percentage points. But Independents dropped by four points to 9%.

The Anti Austerity Alliance-People Before Profit group are unchanged on 4% as are the Greens on 3%.
