The gap may have closed slightly but the latest Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll still shows a little daylight remains between Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil, and Leo Varadkar still remains the leader with the highest satisfaction ratings.

The state of the parties, excluding undecided voters, is: Fine Gael 31 per cent (down three points compared to the last poll in January); Fianna Fáil 26 per cent (up one); Sinn Féin 22 per cent (up three); Labour 5 per cent (up one); Independents/Others 16 per cent (down two).
