Philip Ryan: Kenny still on course to lead government
Numbers game means FG leader is still in the driving seat despite support for Martin, writes Philip Ryan
The public want Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin to be the next Taoiseach, according to the latest Sunday Independent/Millward Brown opinion poll.
But what the public want and what they get are two entirely different matters.
Martin is on the crest of a wave after his odds-defying General Election campaign, but no matter what way you look at it, he doesn't have the numbers to lead the next government.
