Sinn Féin has trebled its support among farmers since 2016, but farmer support for the party still lags well behind its overall support levels.

Recent opinion polls have Sinn Féin at around 35 per cent, twice the level of their support among farmers, according to an Irish Farmers Journal survey.

The poll has some bad news for Fine Gael.

The party is currently at its lowest level of farmer voting since 2007 at 37 per cent,  a drop of 11 per cent since 2018.

Political Correspondent with the Irish Farmers Journal, Pat O'Toole, said for the first time Sinn Fein has broken the 10 per cent mark when it comes to farmer support.
