You're right to point out the huge personality factor in Irish elections, but Joe Higgins has been pretty apologetically left wing in all his policy pronouncements - well to the left of Labour - and thus the very fact that such a politician is electable when De Rossa has already hoovered up the bulk of the left wing vote is in my view significant.
