Poles on the Government...
Thirty-eight percent of Poles believe the government has done a good job in preparing the country for the Euro 2012 soccer tournament, to be hosted by Poland and Ukraine in 2012, according to a survey by the CBOS polling center. Fourteen percent said the government’s handling of the preparations has been poor.

A total of 36 percent approved of the way the government has handled foreign policy and 13 percent disapproved. A total of 31 percent approved of the way the government has managed the country and 14 percent disapproved.

The government received more good than bad marks for economic policy, education and information policy. The people questioned were divided on the government’s performance in terms of road-building and agricultural policy. Critics outnumbered those who approved of the government’s performance in managing public finances and fighting corruption. The government received the poorest marks for its level of commitment to helping the poor (38 percent disapproved and 14 percent approved) and for the way it ran country’s healthcare system (44 percent disapproved, 13 percent approved.)

It was the fourth time CBOS conducted a survey to see how individual areas of the government’s work are viewed by the public. Compared to a survey carried out two years ago, ratings have improved in almost all categories. The survey was conducted on Sept. 8-14 on a representative random sample of 1,077 adults.

…and on Politicians
President Bronisław Komorowski is the most trusted politician in Poland while the leader of the Law and Justice (PiS) party, Jarosław Kaczyński, is the most distrusted, according to an October survey by the CBOS polling center.

Seventy-four percent of those surveyed said they trusted Komorowski. Prime Minister Donald Tusk came second, with 55 percent of those polled saying they trusted him. Waldemar Pawlak, leader of the Polish People’s Party (PSL), came third with 52 percent, and Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski fourth with 51 percent.

Kaczyński was the least trusted politician, with 54 percent of those surveyed saying they did not trust him. Janusz Palikot, leader of the Palikot Movement, a new party, came second alongside PiS deputy Antoni Macierewicz, head of the PiS parliamentary team investigating the Smolensk air crash on April 10, 2010 in which President Lech Kaczyński and 95 others were killed. Palikot and Macierewicz were both distrusted by 36 percent of those polled.

The survey was carried out Sept. 29-Oct. 5.
