Political poll in January shows Smer would have won general election

Had a parliamentary election taken place in January, the opposition Smer party would have received 39.7 percent of the vote, according to a Median SK agency poll released on March 2, the TASR newswire wrote. The poll, which involved a sample of 1,093 respondents, showed that second place would have gone to the coalition party Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) with 11.6 percent, followed by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) at 11.6 percent, Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) with 8.4 percent, Most-Híd with 7.1 percent, and the opposition Slovak National Party (SNS) with 5.7 percent. No other party would have made it over the 5 percent threshold to enter parliament. The number of people who said that they would have definitely gone to the polls reached 37 percent, while 28.2 percent probably would have voted, TASR wrote. Another 23.7 percent said that they definitely would not have voted, while 7.8 percent stated that they probably would not have done so.
