Latest polls show the budget has boosted Fine Gael, but Labour are in trouble

The latest Rec C tracking poll has shown that the budget did not give the coalition the required boost they had been expecting. The coalition government now hold a combined 37% of the voters favour in the latest opinion polls, down 1% from last time. While Fine Gael's support shot up by 2% to 30% following last week's budget, Labour have been the big loser as they fall three points to just 7%. It makes the possibility of another Fine Gael-Labour coalition government forming next time around almost impossible. Fianna Fáil were the big risers since the budget was revealed, with their popularity rising by two points up to 30%. Sinn Féin had no change in popularity, remaining on 16% while independents account for the final 27%.
