I was at my polling station around 7pm, which is peak time, but even then the place was packed.

No SocDem or Labour local candidate in my council area, from what I saw, which seems to show the limit of their party organisation. There was a Green, and I think there was a Green running in every council area. I've a feeling the smaller parties might do well in the locals. It's typically their place to shine and there's a bit of a lining up of the stars with government dissatisfaction and the on-the-ground work I've seen a lot of them put in.

I'll hand it to you though, it was well played :thumbup:

Good news insofar as it looks like the Loopers and Euroskeptics are struggling this time around.
Hopefully an end to Casey as well.

Looks like FF royally screwed up MNW. I had hoped that SF might be down to just Matt Carthy, but they might be in with a chance of keeping all 3. On a positive note Ming might be in trouble.

Quote:

A wave of support for the Greens has set the party on course to top the poll in Dublin according to a RedC exit poll for RTÉ and TG4.

The party may also be in contention for seats in the South and Midlands North West constituencies, something that looked impossible just a few days ago.

The poll comes with caveats but the hike in support for the Green Party looks consistent and widespread even accounting for the 4% margin of error in constituencies. 

The bigger parties look to have a battle on their hands if they are to realise their publicly expressed targets.

Today REDC spoke to 3230 voters in polling stations nationwide.

The findings all indicate a long count to fill the 13 European Parliament Seats. 

Here's a look at the figures in each of the three constituencies.

Dublin

The key trend from the Dublin constituency is the projected poll-topping performance of the Green Party's Ciaran Cuffe. 

If the suggested 23% first preference vote is replicated at the count centre, the Dublin Councillor and former junior minister would all but be guaranteed a seat. 

Just 4% separates the next four candidates - and given the of error is also 4% in this poll, it is impossible to make a prediction as to who might take the 3 remaining seats.

Fine Gael's Frances Fitzgerald is on 14% - that's significantly ahead of her running mate Mark Durcan who languishes on 5%.

The Independents4Change TD, Clare Daly, is on 12%. 

Barry Andrews, of Fianna Fáil on 12%. 

Sinn Féin's Lynn Boylan, who topped the poll in 2014, is on 10%, according to the RTE/TG4 poll. 

Social Democrats Councillor Gary Gannon appears to be off-the-pace on 6%, with Labour's Alex White one point back on 5%. 

As predicted - this constituency will all come down to where those transfers go. 


South 

The RTÉ TG4 poll suggest that Fine Gael's Seán Kelly is poised to the re-elected with the survey of voters putting him on 16% support.
Once again the projected strength of the Green Party is evident here with Grace O'Sullivan on 12%, the poll predicts.
Of the two Fianna Fáil Billy Kelleher leads on 13% with Malcom Byrne on 9%. 
That would suggest Fianna Fáil will take a seat here but talk of a possible two within looks a little optimistic based on these figures.
The Independents 4 Change candidate Mick Wallace has polled 10% support. 
Current Sinn Féin MEP Liadh Ni Riada is on 13%. If that projection is borne out when all the votes are counted it would represent an six point drop in support compared to 2014.
Deirdre Clune appears to be facing a challenge to hold on to her seat here with the exit poll gauging her vote at 9% while her running mate Andrew Doyle at 4%.
Sheila Nunan of the Labour Party is on 3% according to this to this poll.

Midlands North West

Fine Gael's Mairead McGuinness looks likely to top the poll in this constituency this research suggests.
It places the sitting MEP on 25% while her running mate Maria Walsh is on 10%.
That leaves open the possibly of a second Fine Gael seat.
Again the surge in Green support is apparent with this poll indicating that Saoirse McHugh is on 12%.
Again it leaves her in contention for a seat if the figures hold up.
Sinn Féin's Matt Carthy is on 15% while the another sitting MEP Luke Ming Flanagan has 10% support, the poll suggests.
There is a 4% margin of error but Fianna Fáil's key aim to regain a seat in Midlands North West appears to be facing challenges. 
Brendan Smith and Anne Rabbitte are on 6% and 3% support respectively.
The high profile candidate Peter Casey has 7%

So Veon the forestry fund Manager is selling off €30 million of Investors trees before they "mature"
Chipped in for a few shares ourselves, 7 years left on the original 30.
They are promising a strong return, but I believe it's the directors wanting to get their hands on the Deal.

They could have gone hard left Mullet. The commies are going fùcking mental online which is very very gratifying. Ruth Coppinger posted up basically 'all the people who voted Green are clueless and stupid and capitalists'

Can't speak for Dublin, but it was your party's decision to run a mannequin rather than a live human in MNW and then not to bother canvassing. You've reaped what you've sown.

This.

A lot of the Green voters at local level will return to FF/FG when forming a government is at stake.

Interesting to see where that block of liberal transfers goes. Last of them still in might make a run at it. Gave Daly a 4/5 preference myself to try and get the Shinner out. Be great if it comes off.

Would have thought, as Bowman so succinctly put it, the no hopers would go the way of Daly. Haven't had a chance to look into it much but mate telling me it is Cuffe, Fitzgerald, Daly, Andrews with Boylan getting the p45. Suspect Mary Lou will be as well

FF made a balls of mnw by candidate selection
FG had a banker in McGuinness but fell into the trap of selecting a second candidate who looks like an absolute lightweight and had all the worst traits of an increasingly unpopular leader. Meanwhile that Green lady looks like she would batter the head of you and that is both sexy and electable.

FF and FG combined barely scrapping a quarter in Dublin for Europe.

This is no flippant matter.

It'll be interesting to see if that is also reflected in the local elections.

FG are shit administrators -irish water, hospital, broadband

FF are populist that throw money at any and every problem

Their vote is reflective of their performance.


I'll still probably vote for them in the next general election :?

Stick that head of yours firmly back in the sand.
That way you can follow the way of the PDs.

Voters aren't interested in what FF/FG (or Labour or Renua) have to offer but refuse to endorse the looney left. Greens and social democrats will clean up in this environment.
