A NEW POLL has revealed that despite a slip since January, the majority of the country look set to vote in favour of repealing the eighth amendment in Ireland.
An Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI opinion poll published today reveals the general consensus amongst the Irish population ahead of next month’s vote.
47% of those surveyed said that they would vote ‘Yes’ in the referendum, with 28% saying they would vote no.
20% said they were undecided as to how they would vote, which represents an increase of five per cent since January.
Taking undecideds out of the equation, the figures stand at 63% Yes, while 37% will vote No.
Support for repeal is strongest among younger voters, urban voters and among women.
Support for a No vote, on the other hand, was strongest amongst older voters, farmers and lowest income voters.
