The largest opposition party, Smer, attracted 45.2 percent of preferences in a political opinion poll conducted by the MEDIAN SK agency and published on Thursday, July 14.

The poll, carried out by between May 23 and June 19 on a sample of 1,117 respondents, suggested that other political parties in Slovakia had the following levels of support: Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), 14 percent; Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), 10.6 percent; Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), 9.3 percent; and Slovak National Party (SNS), 6.3 percent.

The coalition party Most-Híd fell below the threshold for winning seats in parliament, attracting only 4.9 percent of preferences, the TASR newswire reported, quoting the poll results. This is the first poll conducted by MEDIAN since last year's general election in which Most-Híd, led by Béla Bugár, has not cleared the 5-percent threshold.
