INM’s Group Political Editor Kevin Doyle is joined by political correspondents Niall O'Connor and Philip Ryan on this irreverent but relevant look at the latest developments in General Election 2016.

Today the team ‘whinged’ about Enda Kenny’s performance over the election campaign and discuss what impact it might have on Friday.

There have been 10 polls since the election was called so far in the campaign but they are all pointing to one thing: A hung Dáil.

But can they be believed and even if you trust the polls, can you believe Fine Gael and Fianna Fail when Kenny and Martin say they won’t work in a coalition together?

Niall and Philip argue over the likelihood of a ‘Grand Coalition’ and what alternatives are on offer.

And the team look ahead to the final TV debate which Kevin reckons is ‘do or die’ for the Taoiseach.

The Floating Voter is available every Tuesday and Friday and can be listened to on SoundCloud, iTunes, Stitcher and Independent.ie .
