THE Coalition’s ambition to be re-elected has hit a major stumbling block, according to the latest Sunday Independent/Millward Brown opinion poll.

Fine Gael has dropped two points to 27pc and the Labour Party is down one point to 6pc.

The poll taken between January 25 and February 4 gives the Government partners just 33pc of the vote as the election campaign gets into its second week.

The survey shows Fianna Fail down two points 22pc but Micheal Martin’s party remains within five points of Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s Fine Gael.

Sinn Fein is unchanged on 21pc and Independents/Others are up two points to 22pc.
