Voting intentions unclear for upcoming election
A new opinion poll by TNS OBOP in The Warsaw Voice puts the ruling Civic Platform (PO) on 31% of the vote. In July another poll by GfK Polonia put the PO on 50% of the vote whilst a more recent poll (in early August) by Homo Homini puts them on 37%.
The new poll in The Warsaw Voice shows an increase in undecided voters, up 5% from 23% to 28% which may well explain the fluctuation in the figures.
Last month the main opposition party Law and Justice (PiS) were on 27% in the GfK Polonia poll and 26% in the Homo Homini poll. This latest poll puts them on 22%.
Polling methodologies may well explain the difference, but clearly there is a drop for both of the main parties with voters feeling less certain about how to vote in the 9th October general election.
The Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) are on 6% in the latest poll and were previously on 12% GfK Polonia poll and 15% in the Homo Homini poll.
The junior coalition partner of the PO in the current government, the Polish People’s Party (PSL), are on 5%. In the previous polls they were on 3% and 7% respectively.
