THREE in every four voters want to see any new European Treaty put to a referendum, a new poll says.
The Red C poll for the Sunday Business Post does show a slight majority of people in favour of accepting a new treaty.
The Government has said it won’t decide whether a referendum is required on the new EU treaty until the final text is agreed at a summit on Monday.
In the poll 72% of voters say they want a referendum, while 21% don’t and just 7% don’t know.
When it comes to the Treaty itself, 40% say they will support it, with 36% against, and 24% undecided.
Since the last Red C poll, for Paddy Power a fortnight ago, support for Fine Gael has dropped three points to 30%, Labour is down two to 14%, Fianna Fáil gains one to 18%, Sinn Féin is up three to 17%, and Independents and Others are up one to 21%.
