MVK Poll: Smer still supported by nearly 40 percent

According to a recent survey carried out by the MVK agency, if a general election had taken place at the beginning of August, the main governing-coalition Smer-Social Democracy (Smer-SD) party would have won with 39.7 percent of the vote.

The poll, carried out between July 30 and August 6 on a sample of 1,111 respondents, showed that the main opposition SDKÚ-DS would have finished second on 15.5 percent, with the ethnic-Hungarian SMK third on 10.7 percent.

The Slovak National Party (SNS) was fourth on 10.5 percent, followed by LS-HZDS on 7.8 percent, and the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) on 6.9 percent. The Slovak Communist Party (KSS) and the Green Party would have failed to reach the 5-percent-support threshold needed to win seats in parliament, gaining only 2.4 percent and 2 percent, respectively.

Meanwhile, 11 percent of the respondents said that they wouldn't have voted, while 16.2 percent replied that they wouldn’t have known who to vote for. TASR
