Sinn Féin support rises in latest poll

George Burns:

Sinn Féin seem to have ridden out the storm over the McCartney murder and the Northern job in the Irish Republic with the party's support up two points to 11% in the latest (subs needed) opinion poll commissioned by the Irish Times. Personal satisfaction with party leader Gerry Adams is also on the rise, up eight points to 38%. The poll also shows a big swing in support away from the Government towards the alternative Rainbow coalition.

Of course, the fact that the British were never able to produce any evidence connecting the IRA to the Northern Bank raid plus the fact that the IRA gave the McCartneys the names of their brother's killers has undoubtedly helped Sinn Fein and Gerry Adams to regain support.
