Polis conducted its poll for the SITA newswire over the phone between February 16-22, asking the respondents whom they would vote for if presidential elections took place last weekend.

Prime Minister Robert Fico remains the clear favourite, with the Polis poll estimating his support at 38.8 percent, slightly less than the month before, when he garnered over 40 percent.

Independent candidates Milan Kňažko and Radoslav Procházka both received 9.5 percent in the Polis poll, while Pavol Hrušovský received 6.8 percent of the vote in the poll.

Party of Hungarian Community candidate Gyula Bárdos received 4.3 percent in the poll. Ján Čarnogurský garnered 2.2 percent, followed by Jana Mezenská with 2.1 percent.

Of those polled, 55 percent said they would vote in the election.
