- READ CAREFULLY BEFORE VOTING -

You have two votes.

Vote1 - Indicate your preference, Retain/Repeal.
Vote2 - Indicate your status, Resident, Outside or Not Registered.


Option* : You must have been ordinarily resident in the State on 1 September in the year before the Register comes into force (http://www.citizensinformation.ie/en/mo ... tml#l862a3) This option assumes you are not and therefore your sneaky (and possibly illegal) vote is noted. :nin

Please vote accordingly.

Would be cool to get age profile and gender along with this vote. I reckon it's mainly +35 males on this site.

*Way to offend the other half of the user base! :wink:

*Poll would be way too long, maybe in a later exit poll.

On a technical point, stripping out the actual eligible voters vs aspirational voters in the poll has reduce the noise to signal, assuming everyone is truthful.

If anyone made a mistake they can go back and change any of the options. Nor do you have to use both votes, just be real.

Haha true...just judging by the fallout from the previous 02-08 bubble and where the majority of posters came from back then.

I've been thinking it will be repealed in and around the 55% mark and this poll seems to reflect that (so far).

Well, the original poll had many more votes but it gave the "wrong" answer, so run it again like the Nice Treaty referendum :D

Also note that the percentages displayed are completely false and give a misleading sense that the results are way closer than they are. The numbers are % of all votes cast, including those from people ineligible and the votes cast for residency. So for example it currently shows

No - Retain 23%
Yes - Repeal 30%

That its horseshit. The actual numbers are

No - Retain 41%
Yes - Repeal 55%

ie. double the difference shown in percentage point terms.

I'm sure this is inadvertent but it’s still regrettable that the old poll was replaced by this.

I would be interesting to see how many have changed from a yes to a no or no to a yes since the campaign started.
I've not changed though, but polls suggest that a significant number have switched sided since March.

No 19 = 30%
Yes 45 = 70%

Poll results as of today, excluding the 2 undecideds. There are 66 eligible voters.

Is it my impression that some people have changed from a No to a Yes or have just more people voted Yes since the Nos were cast?
