Share this article


44% of people say they'll vote 'Yes' to repeal the Eighth Amendment in next month's referendum, according to a new poll.

That's a drop of three points since April, while there's been an increase of four points for the no campaign at 32%.

The undecideds are at 17% - a drop of three points - while 7% said they won't vote or refused to say.

This Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll was carried out among 1,200 people on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

When undecided and non-voter figures are excluded, the Yes side leads by 58% to 42%.

Dublin remains the most pro-repeal part of the country, while older voters are still more likely to support the No side.

The Together For Yes campaign claimed the poll shows "strong support for change amongst the Irish public".

Campaign co-director Orla O’Connor said: "From the first moments of the campaign Together For Yes have said we expect this to be a tough campaign which involved robust debate and discussion on both sides. 

"In the remaining days, we intend to redouble our efforts to show people that if they want to provide care and support for women in the most difficult circumstances they need to vote Yes.”

The Eighth Amendment referendum will take place next Friday, May 25th.
