Second Ireland exit poll confirms landslide abortion rights victory

Second Ireland exit poll confirms landslide abortion rights victory

DUBLIN (Reuters) - Irish voters are set to vote in favour of ending its ban on abortion by 69 percent to 31 percent, a second exit poll showed following a referendum on Friday, an almost identical margin to the earlier survey.

Voters in the once deeply Catholic nation were asked if they wish to scrap a prohibition that was enshrined in the constitution by referendum 35 years ago, and partly lifted in 2013 only for cases where the mother's life is in danger.

The RTE/Behaviour & Attitudes exit poll followed an earlier exit poll carried out by the Irish Times newspaper and polling group Ipsos MRBI that suggested the margin would be 68 percent to 32 percent.
