The Belfast Telegraph fills us in concerning the results...
It was properly weighted to take account of geographic and social class differences. Even if the results were 10% inaccurate, they would still indicate a radical change in Catholic views.
Previous polls have established benchmarks against which the new findings can be judged. Where once less than 20% of Catholics preferred living within the UK to a united Ireland, that figure is now 52%. The change in attitudes can be traced back to 2007, coinciding with agreement over a new Executive at Stormont dominated by the DUP and Sinn Fein.
The Republic's economy began a nosedive around the same time from which it has not recovered.
The combination of an acceptable Stormont partnership and an unattractive southern state appears to have had significant influence on Catholic opinion here. And why not?"
