2. How might men and women have voted?

An exclusive survey carried out by the Focus agency for private broadcaster TV Markíza on February 26-28, on 804 respondents suggests that as many as 51.6 percent of women would vote for Čaputová. She would also receive the support of 37.7 percent of men.

Her rival in the second round, Maroš Šefčovič, would also receive higher support from women.

On the other hand, Štefan Harabin would gain more votes from men than women. This is also the case for the far-right extremist Marian Kotleba.
