I see they don’t expect much of a showing from Ganley’s crowd.
Rubbish. FF will be wiped out. I will eat my hat if they get anything like 30% of the vote. My prediction is between 20%-25%.
I know even die hard FF supporters who will either not vote or switch to FG or Labour or worse SF.
I agree. FF will be dumped.
