James Reilly has been rated the worst performing Minister in Government.
According to a new opinion poll of almost 1,000 people in today's Sunday Independent, 27% of people said they were unimpressed with the health minister's performance.
However, his party, Fine Gael is now the most popular party in the country with 24% support - pushing Fianna Fáil off the top spot and down to second position on 23% support.
Fine Gael's coalition partners Labour have recorded further declines in support and are now on just 11%.
Independents and smaller parties gain six points to 22%, while Sinn Féin is up one to 21%.
