The Sunday Independent poll in Dublin says 57 percent favor a loan deal that requires senior lenders to Irish banks -- chiefly other banks in Britain, Germany and the United States -- to suffer partial write-offs on their investments.
The remaining 43 percent polled agree with the existing European Union policy that defaulting on debts would cause unacceptable shockwaves in global banking. The paper said results were based on phone polling of 500 people, with a 3 percent margin of error.
