HIGGINS SLUMPS IN LOCAL POLLS.

The incumbent Michael D. Higgins has slumped in provincial polls taken at centres throughout the country on Thursday and Friday of the week with a fortnight left to the presidential election to be held in Ireland on Friday 26th October.

In Kilkenny Mr. Higgins went from 70% nationwide to 48 per cent in Kilkenny and Waterford, while his opponents Sean Gallagher and Gavin Duffy tied on 15% each. This is significant in that Gavin Duffy was nominated by Waterford Council. Questioning took place in Waterford, Tramore, Dungarvan, Kilkenny city, Thomastown, Castlecomer, Callan & Graignamanagh.  Joan Freeman came next on 10% in this South East poll while Liadh Ni Riada of Sinn Fein rose to 9 % and Peter Casey bringing up the rear on 3% .

There’s barely a fortnight left for the leading candidates Gallagher, Duffy and Freeman to cut into Higgins’ large initial lead.
