Abstract

In the aftermath of the scandal about political parties conducting fake polling, it's perhaps worth delving into the world of constituency polling in Ireland. What is it? And why do political parties do it? The principle reason why constituency polls are important is because individual candidates have a relatively strong influence on voting behaviour in Irish elections.
