Polls and More Polls
Deaglán de Bréadún
Taoiseach in very good humour this weekend apparently. Must be the latest, not-that-bad poll showing. C.J. Haughey purported to disdain polls but that was a front. All politicians take them seriously. One wonders how much of Labour’s strength reflects a genuine shift to the left and how much is due to “pocketbook politics” on the part of punters who don’t want any pain. Too late for another FG heave? Looks like they will have to stick with Enda at this stage.
