Irish support for Lisbon Treaty up - poll
DUBLIN (Reuters) - Irish support for the European Union's Lisbon reform treaty rose two points to 48 percent on Friday but the latest opinion poll also showed the opposition gaining some ground, as the number of "don't knows" shrank.
The "no" camp was up four points to 33 percent, a week before votes are cast. The Irish Times/TNS mrbi poll saw the undecided category drop by six points to 19 per cent.
At a similar stage before last year's referendum 35 percent of voters polled remained undecided, the same number as the eventually victorious "no" camp and five more than the "yes" side.
Ireland will vote again on the charter in another referendum on October 2.
The government is hoping fears of economic isolation will this time swing votes behind the treaty in Ireland, facing deep economic crisis.
