Plenty of time for Leo to get caught up in some Govt.crisis and as the economy is flying the headbanger AAA/PBP/SF and independents will have less appeal outside their demographic.FF will retain its core vote and FG should increase their number of seats. If FF do not make major gains he is toast

1. FF partly to blame for election, so electorate negative
2. Martin is the last senior man remaining in FF from the Bertie years
3. The younger FF members want rid of him
4. Sinn Fein wouldn't support him because of his ministerial record and his opposition to Sinn Fein
5. In the media he comes across as a bit of an idiot.
In my opinion, Micheal Martin is finished.
No. 2 will be his defining dilemma, as he will be always carrying this monkey on his back.

Micheal Martin represents the era in Irish government's history decision to guarantee the banks and placed Ireland into the Troika bailout in 2010, which will be a burden on a generation.

And all opposition parties will use this in pre-election campaigns to FF detriment!

..Martin was finished before he even started, a typical 'politician' without an ounce of credibility, you'd have to ask what in fact the fucker could possibly contribute to any society in any capacity at any time. Only Cork32 comes close to winning the wank stakes with him.
