When it comes to political views, young people are currently divided into two groups, liberals and far-right radicals.

This comes from the recent study of the Institute for Public Affairs (IVO) conducted among 1,083 people who are from 18 to 39-years-old.

The far-right ĽSNS has won the support of 23.5 percent. “Also its leader Marian Kotleba has a large amount of support among young people (30 percent), which is even bigger than support for the party,” reads IVO’s press release.

The support for the opposition Freedom and solidarity (SaS) is almost the same, reaching 23,4 percent.

Of those surveyed 45 percent follow the news regularly and 51 percent do so occasionally.

Most of those who follow the news are SaS voters. On the other hand, ĽSNS voters spend the longest time doing so. Those who are not interested in the news usually do not vote or are undecided.
