The Median SK agency polled a sample of 2,115 respondents, aged between 14 and 79, starting on January 8 and ending on April 1.

It was found that the tabloid's popularity dropped by 2 percentage points compared to the results of a poll carried out during the last four months of 2006.

The Pravda daily had the second highest amount of readers with 10.6 percent, followed by the Sme daily with 8.2 percent. The Plus Jeden Deň daily came in fourth with seven percent and Korzár was last with 4.5 percent.

The survey showed that in Slovakia, 47 percent of people read dailies, which is one percentage point higher than the last results. This figure is based on respondents' answers to the question of whether or not they read their chosen publication's latest issue.
