Irish would vote No a second time

When President Sarkozy had the temerity to suggest that the Irish should hold a second vote on the Lisbon treaty, he of course assumed that they would vote ‘Yes’, as they did when they voted for a second time on the Nice treaty in 2001. However, opinion polls suggest that a new poll would produce the same result as the first one. According to one poll, 62 per cent would reject the treaty in a new vote and only 38 per cent would vote in favour of it. Seventy one per cent said they were opposed to a new referendum.
