The Irish Post readers register their votes in our Irish referendum poll - and it's a landslide!

THE FOLLOWERS of The Irish Post's social media channels have voted in their masses - and the results are in for our spot poll on the Irish referendum.

More than 2,800 Twitter and Facebook users put their cross alongside their voting preference in the referendum to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Irish Constitution - or, indeed how they would vote if they were eligible on Friday, May 25.

Some of you, no doubt, will be voting, while The Irish Post's poll gives the chance for those not in Ireland to register their opinion on a referendum that affects us all.

We asked you the question: "How would you vote in the Irish referendum? Q - Should Ireland remove the 8th amendment from its constitution."

With a simple "Yes" or "No" answer we tested the pulse of the Irish and we got a very profound answer.

It was a landslide!

Just over 65 per cent said that "Yes!" you would repeal the Eighth Amendment of the Irish Constitution.

Only 35 per cent of you wanted to maintain the status quo.

But there is still all to play for. There are three days to go before the historic vote and The Irish Post will continue take our readers' pulse on this issue, right up to the vote itself on Friday.

So, if you didn't get to vote in our "mini-referendum" yesterday then go to our Facebook page right now (or click on the link below) and register your opinion.
