Fine Gael's approval rating has risen to 29%, according to the latest opinion poll.

It found that, after suffering its second-worst election result since 1948, party leader Leo Varadkar's approval has jumped 28 points to 63%.

That's according to a Behaviour and Attitudes survey carried out on behalf of the Sunday Times.

Sinn Féin's approval now stands at 30%, five points higher than its general election result, while Mary Lou McDonald's satisfaction level is at 57%.

The poll is a disappointing one for Fianna Fáil, who have dropped two points down to 20% approval.

The satisfaction rating for Taoiseach Micheál Martin is also down two points to 44%.

The Green Party and Labour are both down one point to 6% and 3%, respectively.

The Social Democrats, Solidarity PBP and Renua are all on 1%.
