Mainstream parties will be looking to take a share of support from Independents as the General Election approaches.
This morning's Behaviour & Attitudes poll for The Sunday Times shows Independents at 26%, Fine Gael dropping two points and Labour unchanged.
The poll was taken between January 4 and 13, and also showed Fianna Fáil drop off by one point, while Sinn Féin fell by one point.
Meanwhile, a Red C poll by the Sunday Business Post, taken between last Monday and Wednesday, indicates a two-point decrease for Labour with Fine Gael holding steady and Independents at 23%.
However, both polls show the senior coalition partner Fine Gael retaining an 11-point lead over their nearest rivals.
In terms of the Opposition, the Red C poll in the Sunday Business Post shows Fianna Fáil gaining two points to 19. This brings the party level with Sinn Féin, who are unchanged.
