This morning’s Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI opinion poll on May 25 voting intentions

Next Friday the time comes when we’ll
At last get a chance to repeal
If someone can be swayed
Stand up and persuade
Them to vote Yes and make freedom real

John Moynes

    The not-sures will Vote NO.

    If you think otherwise, YES will lose.

    And a better performance than that CB Live one will be needed to convince the not-sures, who, I believe, will be won via mainstream media not internet memes…
    IMO.

        Why must they be uninformed and easily led? Could it not be that their values differ from yours? It’s possible you know.

    Opinion polls are there to shape public opinion more than to represent it.

    Fully agree on the ‘refused’ category being nos. Therefore it’s now at 44% Yes; 39% No; and 17 percent of the population who will decide the fate of this referendum.

    This is our Brexit moment unless ordinary, compassionate people really pull out the stops in the next week. The no campaign have been at this for, well, about 2,000 years so they’re fairly fooking good at campaigning. Alas the respectful and sober yes campaign has, just like for Brexit, fared badly against a legion of very zealous individuals who, when it boils down to it, believe that the right of the collective outweighs individual rights when it comes to pregnancy. That outlook is a mindset that can be very hard to change. I still hold to the old axiom that if you don’t like abortions, don’t have one.

    Look at the polls leading up to Brexit and then the result. Then go and knock on your neighbour’s door and put a human face they know and trust to the yes campaign:

        Well clearly I had a fit while typing

        What I was TRYING to say was:

        If you hadn’t apologised for that there’s a chance I’d have had to come find you and beat you up on behalf of my beloved Paul Simon.
