A major political upset could be on the cards in General Election 2016 in Clare should the results of a Clare Champion-commissioned opinion poll be replicated on February 26.
Our General Election poll, carried out by the marketing department of Limerick Institute of Technology, shows that there could be changes if trends remain unchanged between now and polling day.
With national polls indicating that the overall outcome of General Election 2016 poised delicately in the balance, the Clare result could be a major contributory factor in determining the shape of the next government in the 32nd Dáil. The closeness of the contest at national level has been heightened by the reduction in the number of seats by eight to 158.
Conducted on last Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the data in The Clare Champion 2016 Clare Constituency General Election Poll is based on the responses of 660 registered electors collected at 14 sample points across the municipal districts of Ennis, Shannon, Killaloe and West Clare.
