Result: A hung parliament with nationalist parties and greens holding the balance of power and a 50-50 split in NI.

What about the Republic of Ireland?

Irish voting intentions:

Sinn Féin        26%.
Fine Gael               22%
Labour                    7%
Fianna Fáil           20%

Dàil Seat distribution should such national support trends be replicated in an actual general election.:

Sinn Fein 44,

Fine Gael 43,

Fianna Fail 34,  

Labour Party 2,

Independents and Others 35.

Result: Fine Gael, Labour, and Fianna Fáil – with their combined 49%, would find it difficult to form a Coalition  Government, with Sinn Fein holding the balance of power

Bearing in mind that47%  of voters  want to see a new political party emerge, what kind of coalition can we expect with Sinn Fein holding the balance of power? What will be the impact on NI?
