The Sunday Business Post carries the latest Poll findings today (reported here at RTE), concluding that neither the government nor Rainbow alternative would be likely to have the numbers to form a stable government on the basis of the results. Fianna Fail at 35% (-2), Fine Gael 25% (up 2), Labour 12% (down 1), Sinn Fein 10% (up 1), Greens 5% (down 2) and PDs 4% (up 1). Independents are at 9%. Early days yet, of course, but such an outcome would leave Sinn Fein- and some Independents- as the Kingmakers of any new government.

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
