The popularity of Mikuláš Dzurinda's Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) has been dropping as the New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) with 11 percent, the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) collecting 10.9 percent and the Communists with 9.5 percent are well ahead of the SDKÚ, which is left with 9 percent only.
The poll suggests that Christian Democrats would collect 9.5 percent were elections held today.
