Poll: Smer's popularity nears 50%

According to a poll carried out by the Focus agency in May, the opposition Smer party had the support of 47.1 percent of respondents. If repeated in a general election, that level of support would be enough to allow Smer to form a government on its own, the TASR newswire wrote on Tuesday, May 31.
