Conversely, Fico received as much as 29.3 percent as the least-trusted politician; followed by Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) head Richard Sulík (18.6 percent)and Matovič (17 percent), former Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) chair Mikuláš Dzurinda (13.4 percent), former Slovak National Party (SNS) leader Ján Slota (13.2 percent), Gašparovič (10.1 percent), KDH chairman Ján Figeľ (9.6 percent), Kaliňák (8.3 percent), Lipšic (8 percent) and independent MP Alojz Hlina (7.3 percent).

The survey was carried out between September 26 and October 2 and released on October 9. A sample of 1,078 respondents was asked two questions: “Who do you consider to be most serious and trusted politicians?” and “Who do you think are the politicians that have caused serious problems and dragged the level of Slovak politics down the most?” People were allowed to choose three names in each case.
