THE RULING Smer party would receive 39 percent of the vote if general elections took place at the end of October, according to an opinion poll conducted over the phone by the Polis polling agency and reported by the SITA newswire.
The support of Smer among voters has dropped compared to the previous two Polis polls. In July the party’s preferences stood at more than 42 percent and in September, 39.7 percent.
Smer would be followed by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with 9.7 percent of the vote, while Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OLaNO) would have finished third with 9.1 percent. Most-Hid would have received 8.5 percent, followed by the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) with 7.4 percent.
The Party of Hungarian Communities (SMK) would also make it to parliament with 5.3 percent, as would Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) with 5.2 percent.
With just 4.6 percent of the vote each, neither NOVA nor the Slovak National Party (SNS) would make it into parliament, according to the poll.
