Two polls have been published by the Focus agency this August; the first was published on August 9, while the most recent one came out on August 20. It suggests a drop in support for the ruling Smer party, as well as the far-right People's Party – Our Slovakia (ĽSNS).

Compared to the beginning of August, Smer dropped by 1 percentage point to 20.8 percent. However, it still leads the polls. The ĽSNS was supported by 11.4 percent of respondents in the recent poll, dropping by 0.7 percentage points.
