The second highest number of votes would go to the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with the support of 10.8 percent of respondents, the poll shows, with Ordinary People and Ordinary Personalities placing third, with 7.8 percent. The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) would receive 7.3 percent of the vote, followed by Most-Híd with 6.1 percent and New Majority (NOVA) with 5.1 percent.

SaS would win the support of only 3.9 percent of the vote, which is even less than the non-parliamentary Party of the Hungarian Community (SMK) and the Slovak National Party (SNS), which would both receive 4.5 percent, SITA wrote.
