A new poll by LucidTalk for the Belfast Telegraph has seen the Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) rise three points from May, bringing them to 13% overall.

Alliance and the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) are the only other parties to see a positive rise. Alliance go up two points to 17%, and the DUP are on 21%, up one from May.

Sinn Fein still tops the polls at 24%, but they have lost two points from May.

Traditional Unionist Voice (TUV) saw the largest drop in support, going from 8% to 5%, a drop of three points.

The Ulster Unionist Party (UUP) dropped one point bringing them to 12%, they’ve been overtaken by the SDLP.

People Before Profit (PBP) and the Greens are both at 1%, remaining the same from May, with Aontu down one point to 1%.

It is important to note that the poll reflects that not all parties are running in all constituencies throughout Northern Ireland. The poll last month assumed that all parties were running everywhere.
