As the Oireachtas breaks for its summer recess, the Red C/Sunday Business Post poll shows Independents/Others have the highest level of support, following a four point spike taking them to 31 per cent.
The Labour Party saw its support rise one point to 8 per cent. The coalition parties have the backing of one in three voters, according to the poll.

The Behaviour & Attitudes poll found 70 per cent of voters supported such a measure, down from 76 per cent in the previous poll.
