Enda's second term at risk from a Labour meltdown
There is a growing bullishness in Fine Gael that it can successfully stem its election losses next time. If that is so - and it's a big if - the doubtful looks will be focused upon Labour.
The Labour stalwarts love to recall those premature obituaries of their party. They concede that the party has often been down - but it has never been counted out.
All of this is true. National opinion polls do not show the persistence of "local Labour brand names" - people who are dug in at constituency level and can get elected despite their party's most adverse circumstances.
