Poll: Smer top party by far, Sieť shedding support

Had a general election taken place in late July and the first half of August, the ruling Smer party would have won it on 44 percent of votes. This follows from a poll that Median SK agency conducted between July 21 and August 17 on a sample of 1,058 respondents.

Had a general election taken place in late July and the first half of August, the ruling Smer party would have won it on 44 percent of votes. This follows from a poll that Median SK agency conducted between July 21 and August 17 on a sample of 1,058 respondents.

The Christian-Democratic Movement came a distant second at 9.3 percent, followed by the Sieť party of Radoslav Procházka on 7.6 percent. Five more parties would have made it into parliament – the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) at 6.3 percent, Slovak Democratic and Christian Union-SDKÚ (6.2 percent), Most-Híd (6 percent), Freedom and Solidarity-SaS (5.9 percent) and the Party of Hungarian Community-SMK (5.4 percent). The Slovak National Party (SNS) would not have reached parliament gaining 4.5 percent support. No other party exceeded 3 percent, while it requires 5 percent of votes for a party to make it to parliament.

Compared to the previous poll by MEDIAN SK in July, the support for Sieť dropped by 3.1 percentage points. Smer and Most-Híd fell by 1.9 and 1.3 p.p., respectively. Public backing for SMK increased by 1.5 p.p., and four more parties did better in the latest survey than before - KDH (by 1.3 p.p.), SDKÚ (by 1.2 p.p.), SNS (by 1 p.p.) and OĽaNO (by 0.8 p.p.).
