Undecided voters key to treaty vote


The outcome of the European stability treaty referendum on May 31st is wide open, according to the latest Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll which shows the result is in the hands of undecided voters.

Asked whether they were likely to vote Yes or No to the treaty, 30 per cent of voters said Yes, 23 per cent said No, 39 per cent were undecided and 8 per cent said they would not vote.

When undecided voters, and those who won’t vote, are excluded the Yes side is ahead by 58 per cent to 42 per cent but the outcome hinges on the attitude of the currently undecided voters.

The Government this morning launched its information site, stabilitytreaty.ie, for the forthcoming EU fiscal referendum. The website is also available in a mobile format and has links to Facebook and Twitter.

It said the full text of the treaty will be delivered to every household in the State in early May, printed in English and Irish. Another leaflet will be delivered before polling day summarising the main points of the European compact.

The Government has alos produced an information video on the treaty, which can be viewed below:
