Amazingly I can find no reference to this story in the on line version of today's Sunday Independent.  Their polls have to be treated with extreme caution because they are often based on small samples, leading questions, and very tendentious "analysis"...

To compare a candidate's current support level with that of two weeks ago is nonsensical because 2 weeks ago no one knew how many candidates were going to succeed in getting a nomination. Norris and Dana, in particular, only secured nominations at the last minute and McGuinness was also sprung on the campaign as a big and late surprise. The Independent is running a rapidly anti-McGuinness campaign which makes anything they say suspect.

I think it will still take some time for voters to make up their minds and for polls to settle into a consistent pattern.
