A recent poll by the Focus agency, conducted between January 23rd and 28th on a sample of 1,012 respondents asked, “To what degree do you trust or mistrust the following politicians?”

The results show that the greatest popular trust is still placed with President Andrej Kiska as a total of 52.6 percent believe him and 44 percent mistrust him. He is followed by Speaker of Parliament Andrej Danko, SNS (33.2 percent trust) and his deputy in the parliament, Béla Bugár, Most-Hid (31 percent trust) the Sme daily wrote on February 10.

Following the coalition politicians, the opposition SaS-party leader Richard Sulík was given 30.7 percent trust and opposition Sme Rodina /WE Are Family chairman, Boris Kollár, received 30.5 percent. Prime Minister Robert Fico (Smer) follows all these with 29.5 percent of respondents trusting him and 67.7 percent showing mistrust.

Focus poll: the least-trusted Slovak politicians

Fico is the third least trusted politician coming above extremist Marian Kotleba, ĽSNS (13.6-percent trust/82.4 percent mistrust) and opposition OĽaNO-party leader Igor Matovič (26.5 percent trust/70 percent mistrust). The chairman of the extra-parliamentary Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) Alojz Hlina enjoys the trust of 18.9 percent and the mistrust of 67 percent of the respondents.

A simultaneous poll by Focus, where people were asked to spontaneously name the three most trustworthy politicians, had different results, the Pravda daily wrote on February 10.

Although this poll was still led by Kiska (23.4 %), it had Fico ranking second (23 %).
