LE seats. A lot of the seats that the Greens took were in Dublin and in areas that FG thought were theirs. This could be a major problem for FG going into a GE and it may be one of the reasons why Varadkar hesitated about a snap GE. The Greens also stopped any Labour revival (much to RTE's upset with all their presenters wearing red to show their support). The SocDems also targeted the same Nice But Dim demographic that Labour had been targeting and Gannon, I think, got more votes than White/Labour in the Dublin Euro. With the return of the Greens, the number of possible Labour seats at the next GE will be lower. And the whole RedC exit poll has shown most of the media up as clueless chumps. The media, for the most part, had very bad elections.The Greens had a small bump, hardly worth the media coverage they received. SF, on the other hand, have lost more votes under Mary Lou and their new direction than they had with Gerry Adams.
