Compared to the AKO survey from this August, Kiska has managed to increase the popularity of his party from 8.8 percent to 12.0 percent. If the elections took place in October, Za ľudí would came fourth.
The non-parliamentary electoral coalition Progressive Slovakia-Spolu remains the strongest opposition party, given the poll results. However, it dropped from this August’s 15.5 percent to 12.7 percent in October.
Similarly, other parties would suffer compared to August preferences.
However, the far-right People’s Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) has strengthened its position from 10.9 percent to 12.3 percent this month. ĽSNS would thus be the third strongest party in the parliament if the elections were held in October 2019.
The ruling Smer party leads the October poll with 20.1 percent, which is an increase of 0.5 percent from August.
Recently established parties, Vlasť (Homeland), led by Supreme Court judge Štefan Harabin, and Dobrá voľba (Good Choice), led by ex-health minister Tomáš Drucker, would not make it over the five-percent threshold required to make it into parliament.
The poll was conducted via phone by the AKO pollster from October 7 to 10, totaling 1,000 respondents.
