April 21 (Bloomberg) -- Sixty-one percent of Irish voters who expressed a preference will support the European fiscal treaty in the May 31 referendum, a poll showed, Dublin-based broadcaster RTE reported.

Thirty-nine percent are opposed to the treaty, when undecided voters are excluded, according to the poll, which was commissioned by the Sunday Times, RTE said.

Thirty-two percent of respondents were undecided. Including that segment of answers, 42 percent would support the treaty and 27 percent wouldn’t, according to RTE. The poll was carried out by Behaviour & Attitudes over a seven-day period this month among 946 voters and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percent, RTE said.

Fifty-five percent of voters said they didn’t understand the treaty well or at all, according to the poll, RTE said.
