Poll shows support for Fianna Fail has increased by five percent

Support for Fianna Fail has increased by five percent in the latest Red C/ Sunday Business Post poll.

This poll, carried out a day after Bertie Ahern's shock announcement that he will resign on the 6th of May, shows an increase in support for Fianna F€il of five percent to 40.

The poll comes as Tanaiste Brian Cowen prepares to take over the reigns from Bertie Ahern who will leave office in a matter of weeks.

Fine Gael is down two to 28% while Labour is unchanged at 11.

The Greens are up one to nine while Sinn F€in and the Independents are down three and two points respectively.

Those surveyed were also asked who would make a better Taoiseach.

63% said Brian Cowen while just 24% chose Enda Kenny.

Meanwhile 31% said they didn't want Bertie Ahern to resign but felt he had no option.

20% said they wanted Mr Ahern to go.
