Dublin Bay South byelection: Bacik picking up support across party lines

Opinion Poll: Byelection too close to call

Next week’s Dublin Bay South byelection promises to be a straight shoot-out between Fine Gael’s James Geoghegan and Labour’s Ivana Bacik. Today’s Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll predicts 27 per cent first preference votes for Councillor Geoghegan and 22 per cent for Senator Bacik.

Of course, the byelection is not until July 8th, so this poll, like all polls, is only a snapshot in time and furious canvassing in the days head may alter this picture. Turnout will also be a factor, especially if fair-weather voters stay at home, which happens frequently in byelections.
