This latest research – says 52% of voters have no confidence in the government, while 45 per cent believe it will last less than a year. The poll was conducted by Red C on behalf of Paddy Power. They interviewed a random sample of 1,015 adults aged over 18 by telephone between the 9th – 11th May.

Varadkar has the support of 32 per cent of voters, ahead of Simon Coveney on 25. The poll also measures support for individual parties, with Fine Gael retaining a two-point lead over Fianna Fáil.
