The first Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI opinion poll since the general election reveals a political landscape transformed by the pandemic.
Three months after voters resolved to relieve Leo Varadkar of his responsibilities and replace him with – well, with someone else – they now reward him and his Government with his highest approval ratings ever. Support for his party has surged, while a majority of voters are now happy to see Fine Gael remain in government.
