Irish Polling Indicator: Labour support doubles in two months

Support for the Labour party has increased from 5% early June to 10% early August, the Irish Polling Indicator finds. The IPI pools information from all national Irish party opinion polls to arrive at what is arguably the best estimate of the parties' current standings. Fine Gael comes out on top with 24%, but because of the uncertainty margin all opinion polls have, Independents/Others on 23% or Sinn Féin on 21.5% might also be in the lead. Fianna Fáil lags somewhat behind on 19%.
