The Sunday Business Post Red C Poll yesterday showed Fine Gael 3% ahead of Fianna Fail. In other words, within the margin of error. Speaking to FG people, they regard the fact that the party is leading FF as being the most important part of the story, but it isn’t. The fact is, in the current crisis with FF on its knees, surely FG should be light years ahead, not level pegging with FF?
We all know why this is. We all know why FG is not clearly ahead. I’m not going to even say it, just point out that FG’s failure to deal with the single issue which is holding them back raises questions about their fitness to lead a government.
