29 Kevin M. Leyden and Michael S. Lewis-Beck The Irish Voter and the Economy: The 2002 Baseline The first (2002) INES could have been expected to show that the Fianna Fáil–Progressive Democrat government coalition reaped considerable reward in the face of the ongoing economic boom. It did win but, in the words of The Irish Voter, it was ‘not perhaps such a large victory as might have been expected’ (Marsh et al. 2008: 5). Still, there was clear evidence that the economy mattered for voters. In terms of assessing the major problems of the nation, respondents gave the government much more positive remarks, when compared to the opposition.

Voters on the right of the political spectrum chose Fine Gael, voters on the left chose Labour or Sinn Féin. Conclusion In this chapter, we suggest that the 2011 Irish election witnessed an increase in class-based voting. A catastrophically bad performance by the incumbent catch-all party led to it losing a large fraction of its vote. These defectors were faced with choosing between one of the opposition parties, parties that were offering distinct economic prescriptions in a context in which economic policy was of extraordinary high salience.
