After two years in office, the Robert Fico government is considered very or rather successful by more people than the two terms led by ex-prime minister Mikuláš Dzurinda.

A public opinion poll carried out by the MVK polling agency on a sample of 1,083 people between May 29 and June 4 found that as much as 33.1 percent of respondents share this view. Dzurinda's first term was deemed successful or rather successful by 16 percent of respondents. His second cabinet received a 10.4-percent approval rating during a poll in September 2004. SITA
