The sample size was 3,800.

Among the 18-24 age group, the Yes vote is projected at 87.6%, while for 25-34 year olds it is 84.6%.


The Yes vote for 35-49 was 72.8% and 63.7% for 50-64.

The 65+ age group was the only one NOT to vote in favour of repeal, with 58.7% voting No.

Finally, the exit poll also indicated that 79% of people in Dublin voted for repeal.
