The survey questions were included in the Nationally Representative iReach Consumer Decisions Omnibus run between 22nd of June and the 29th of June and has a 3% Confidence Interval and 95% Confidence Level.

Liverpool are the Reds = King Kenny (Dalglish) at Number 7
Leinster are the Blues = Jamie Heaslip at Number 8
Ireland are the Greens = Roy Keane at Number 5
Sweeden are the Yellows = Zlatan at Number 9

In our new survey, we found out the point of view of 1000 adults in Ireland about the change in leadership here. Nearly two-thirds (65%) of Irish respondents are pleased with Varadkar’s replacement of Enda Kenny. With a majority (62%) of those that are pleased, agreeing that he “represents modern, diverse and open-minded Ireland.”

Of those 35% that aren’t pleased with Vardkar replacing Kenny, over half (53%) were not pleased with Varadkar because they did not like the values that he embodies.

Of all respondents, 48% said “His arrival to power proves the positive changes in Irish society in the last years.”

Four out of five (80%) individuals agree that government should make a change regarding corruption, but 52% of people think that Varadkar will have no effect or a negative effect on corruption in his term of leader.

Similarly, around three-quarters (77%) of Irish adults would like to see change on education, but 40% do not think Varadkar will have a positive impact on it.
71% of respondents like Varadkar’s policy on capitalising Ireland’s opportunities from Brexit. Varadkar looks to take inward investment, trade, and European Agency relocation opportunities.

Four out of five (82%) would like to see government making a change in the Health sector, and 30% think Varadkar will have a positive on health services. 41% of Irish see Varadkar making a positive effect on inequality in Ireland, while 79% of females agree in government making a change in inequality, compared to 68% of males agreeing with a change.

Varadkar also plans to hold a referendum in 2018 to repeal the 8th amendment. Over half of Irish adults are in favour of this (56%), 31% are indifferent and only 13% aren’t in favour.

Leo Varadkar has been in power for just over a month now and has already announced that a referendum will be held in 2018 and is planning to lay out a road map for achieving a low carbon economy. Only time will tell how successful Leo Varadkar will be.
