[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]ONLY 22% OF Irish people trust TDs and councillors, a new poll finds.[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]The findings of a [font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]Claire Byrne Live/Amárach Research[/font] poll also found that just two people in ten have faith in their local politicians.[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]The findings come after an RTÉ documentary [font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]showed a host of wrongdoing[/font] among politicians flouting rules about the non-disclosure of business interests.[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]The poll found that 22% of people in Ireland trust politicians, 60% do not and 18% don’t know.[/font]
[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]The breakdowns are broadly similar across regions and genders.[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]In other questions, the poll found that 36% of Irish people support the introduction of a sugar tax, while 56% were against it. A further 8% were unsure.[/font]

[font=Georgia, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif]A third question asked if people supported Ireland taking more than the 4,000 refugees it has pledged to take. Just 20% said yes, 67% said no and 13% didn’t know.
