This stems from the poll carried out by the Polis agency between February 6 and 14 on 1,670 respondents for the SITA newswire. Smer would win the support of 38.4 percent of the vote, resulting in 67 of 150 parliamentary seats.

Second would become Sieť backed by 10.4 percent of the vote (18 seats), followed by Most-Híd with 9.2 percent (16 seats). The Slovak National Party (SNS) would place fourth with 9.1 percent (16 seats), followed by Christian Democratic Movement with 6.6 percent (12 seats) and Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) with 5.2 percent (nine seats).

Outside the parliament would remain the Party of Hungarian Community (SMK) supported by 4 percent of the vote, Sme Rodina (We Are Family) – Boris Kollár with 3.6 percent, Kotleba – Ľudová Strana Naše Slovensko (People’s Party Our Slovakia) with 2.5 percent, the Communist Party of Slovakia (KSS) with 1.4 percent, and the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) with 1.3 percent, SITA wrote.
