This survey in the Republic of Ireland was conducted exclusively on behalf of The Irish Times by Ipsos MRBI, among a national quota sample of 1,200 representative of the c.3.4m adults aged 18 upwards, covering one hundred and twenty sampling points throughout all constituencies in the Republic of Ireland. Personal in-home interviewing took place on February 19th and 20th and the accuracy level is estimated to be approximately plus or minus 2.8%.
In all respects, the survey was conducted within the guidelines laid down by The Marketing Society of Ireland, and by ESOMAR.
A question on voting importance has been included in this latest poll. All respondents are asked how much
their vote counts on a scale from 1 to 10 where 1 means it “makes no difference” and 10 means it “makes all
the difference”. Those answering 1 to this question are treated as non-voters and are excluded from our party
preference calculation, along with those who don’t know how they will vote or say they will not vote.
