More than half of voters say the government is ‘not doing a good job’ in dealing with the pandemic.
According to an Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI poll, the rate now stands at 51 per cent – up 15 per cent since last autumn.
Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Health Minister Stephen Donnelly also received poor ratings from the majority of voters, while more than 80 percent believe the Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan is doing a good job.
Political analyst Johnny Fallon says the public clearly isn’t happy.
He says the poll show shows voters are looking for leadership and not finding it with the Government.
