James MacCarthy-Morrogh: Clearer aims are giving the Yes side an advantage
This poll was taken in a week of extraordinary economic and social turmoil across Europe. Greece is on the brink of chaos, Spanish banks are being nationalised, a new Socialist president took office in France, and the euro is battered from all sides. An Irish European referendum has never taken place against a background of such uncertainty.
The Yes side will be pleased to see that the campaign is holding its steady lead -- with 60pc of decided voters saying they will vote Yes and 40pc saying they will vote No.
However, a large proportion of voters (35pc) remain undecided some two weeks from polling day, their uncertainty can only be further fuelled by the turbulent news from the continent.
