‘Yes’ camp still well ahead in latest Lisbon poll

The 'Yes' camp continues to have a significant lead in the run-up to next week's referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, according to the latest Irish Times opinion poll.

Forty-eight per cent of respondents to the poll said they intended to vote 'Yes' next Friday, up two points since the last poll in early September.

The 'No' side has also seen its vote increase by four points to 33%, with 19% of respondents still undecided.

A breakdown of the figures show more support for a 'Yes' vote among men and older voters.

The staunchest opposition to the treaty is among the less well-off, with 48% planning to vote 'No', compared with just 18% in the wealthier sectors of society.

The various campaign groups have just one week left to convince voters of the merits of their arguments before the polls open next Friday morning.
