Greens have picked up that floating protest vote because climate change is in news, and people have forgotten their part in the banking disaster.
Someone else will get it the next time.
Just from seeing tallies, and listening to reports, I would say the exit polls are wrong. Seem to have under-estimated the FF vote and over-estimated the SF vote, SF have given up on Boylan as they will be lucky to get 10% and Andrews seems to be several points higher than the exit polls.
Similar in Euros where SF vote is bombing across every county which to me would place a doubt over Carthy and ni Riada and possibly put Wallace - god help us - in with a shout.
Interesting that one of the pollsters talking about the attitudinal aspects kept stressing “of course this is a very small sample”! Suggests to me that exit poll might not be a great clue other than to the poll toppers.
