    The woman is hateful. Bigoted, lying, nasty (and this is backed up by Stormont insiders) but she will probably still get elected tomorrow by gay hating, Catholic hating stuck in the past NI voters. Sad :(


    The DUP’s Arlene Foster is the “least trustworthy’ and least likeable” party leader in Northern Ireland, according to LucidTalk’s latest Tracker poll.

    DUP leader Arlene Foster fares worst, with 63% rating her trust factor as very low or bad. This is almost twice as many as distrust Michelle O’Neill (32%),

    Naomi Long of the Alliance Party scores highest for trustworthiness, with 64% giving her a moderate or very high rating. The SDLP’s Colum Eastwood also does well, with 50% finding him either moderately or highly trustworthy.

    According to the poll, voters have no strong opinion about the UUP’s new leader, Robin Swann on trust, with 46% giving him a neutral score.


    According to the poll, likeability is an even bigger issue for Arlene Foster than trustworthiness.

    The question here was:” Taken 'in the round' - How do you rate each of the 'top five' NI Political Party Leaders in terms of likeability, .e.g having this person as a friend/acquaintance, attending a social event and/or having a coffee/drink/meal with this person? (Please answer neutrally and honestly i.e. disregard your personal political views).”

    Again, Arlene Foster gets the lowest approval of all the leaders, with 68% rating her likeability as very low or bad.

    Michelle O’Neill once is once more second lowest but, again, the percentage of people rating her likeability as very low or bad, at 33%, is just under half of Mrs Foster’s number.

    Naomi Long (62%) and Colum Eastwood (55%) again prove popular in the moderately high or very high categories while the poll participants were again neutral (44%) about Robin Swann.
