Support For Abolition Of Seanad Drops


The latest Red C poll shows that support for abolishing the Seanad has dropped by 3 percent. The poll was carried out between Monday and Wednesday of this week, on 1,002 randomly chosen adults, via phone calls.

49 percent of voters said they would support scrapping the Seanad, which is 3 percent less than the previous poll results. The number of people who voted to keep the Seanad has risen by 2 percent, to a total of 36 percent. Roughly 15 percent say they remain undecided.

The poll shows that support for abolition is strongest in Connacht and Ulster. It also reveals that Sinn Féin and Fine Gael supporters are most likely to vote in favour of abolishing.

There’s an even split between Yes and No from voters in the capital. The referendum on the abolition of the Seanad is due to be held on the 4th of October.
