Kenny must wrest election momentum back from Fianna Fáil - or face the sack

'Much more is needed from the Taoiseach himself in tonight’s debate. It’s not enough for him just to ‘not make any mistakes’.'

Enda Kenny has three days to save his job. The notion will be rubbished by Fine Gael figures. But it's undoubtedly the case. The 'Sunday Independent' Millward Brown poll, and yesterday's ISPOS/MRBI result, both brought flashing red lights for Fine Gael.

The momentum in this topsy turvy campaign is with Micheál Martin/Fianna Fáil and, of course, the Independents.

Fine Gael, with an insipid, error-prone campaign, is at best stalled, at worst going backwards. The presumed coronation of Kenny has turned into an unseemly scrap.
