The latest Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll suggests voters are in broad agreement with the Government regarding the need for fiscal prudence in the absence of clarity or certainty regarding the impact of Brexit on our economy.
Satisfaction with how the Government is running the country has climbed to 42 per cent, a gain of 11 points since our May poll, taken just before the Dáil rose for summer recess.
