Poll Shows Country Has Little Appetite For Snap Election

Longford Westmeath's Peter Burke was one of three Fine Gael TDs that called for tax-cuts last month.

A new poll out today shows the country has little appetite for a snap election.

Sinn Fein's support is marginally up and there's been little reaction to Fine Gael's calls for a tax cut for middle income Ireland.

Three junior Fine Gael Ministers, which included Longford Westmeath Deputy Peter Burke, called for tax-cuts last month - but it appears to have made little difference to would-be voters, with those polled saying it wouldn't change the way they vote or their support for Leo Varadkar or Fine Gael.

However it did spark a bitter row within the coalition, with claims of 'kite-flying' ahead of the next General Election.

Today's Sunday Independent 'Ireland thinks' poll puts Sein Fein up another point to 32 percent support with potential voters.. ahead of Fine Gael and Fianna Fail, unchanged at 20 and 19 percent respectively.
