Don’t know if ye guys are sick of the election at this stage but if ye aren’t maybe check out my documentary on the subject.

One interesting aspect is I go back to the same polling station I interviewed people in in 2011 and 2016 to compare & contrast etc.

For the first time ever, three parties are all fighting it out to be Ireland’s most popular party according to the official Exit Poll for General Election 2020.

The Ipsos MRBI Exit Poll for TG4, RTÉ, The Irish Times and UCD shows Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and Sinn Féin all on 22% of first preference votes.

Any excuse.

More as we get it.
