DUBLIN - Support for the Irish government has dropped significantly, a poll showed on Friday, at a time when it has to persuade Irish citizens to back the European Union's fiscal treaty in a May 31 referendum.

The poll also showed the popularity of Sinn Fein, the former political wing of guerrilla group the Irish Republican Army (IRA), rising due to its anti-austerity stance, making it Ireland's second most popular political party.

The Irish Times poll, carried out by IPOS/MRBI, showed that satisfaction with the government has dropped 14 percentage points to 23% since the last poll in October.

Support for Sinn Fein, which is leading the 'no' vote campaign in the referendum, rose to 21%, its highest rating in an Irish Times poll.
