Two weeks from today, the country will go to the polls to vote in 2018 Presidential Election, and it looks as if a familiar face will be staying in Áras an Uachtaráin for a little while longer.

The Paddy Power/Red C survey of a thousand people has found that 7 in 10 people are backing Michael D Higgins for re-election as President.

The 77 year old remains very popular amongst younger generations, earning the first preference vote of 83% of 18-34 year olds.

Of the other candidates in the Race for the Áras, Seán Gallagher holds second place with 14%.

The remaining candidates - Gavin Duffy, Joan Freeman, Liadh Ní Riada and Peter Casey - are yet make their mark on voters, with all securing less than 10% of the first preference vote.

Here are the candidates that you will see on your ballot paper on October 26th:

MICHAEL D HIGGINS
SEÁN GALLAGHER
GAVIN DUFFY
JOAN FREEMAN
 
LIADH NÍ RIADA

PETER CASEY
