‘Irish Times’ poll: Public favour repeal of Eighth despite slip in support
Strong backing for removing constitutional ban on abortion but fifth of voters undecided
April 19, 2018
The repeal side maintains a strong lead in the abortion referendum campaign with today’s Irish Times/Ipsos MRBI opinion poll suggesting there is a clear majority in favour of removing the constitutional ban on abortion.
Although support for repeal has slipped somewhat since the last poll in January, there is no growth in the support for retaining the Eighth Amendment of the Constitution, while a fifth of voters say they have yet to make up their minds.
