Ruling party PO voter support rebounds after recent loss
July 16, 2014
Poland's ruling party Civic Platform (PO) saw its voter support edge up by 1 ppt to 25%, rebounding after the previous poll showed a loss by 4 pps in the wake of the wiretappings scandal, while support for the main opposition party Law and Justice (PiS) slipped by 1 ppt to 31%, showed a Homo Homini poll conducted for Rzeczpospolita daily.
Junior coalition partner Polish People’s Party (PSL) saw its support hold flat at 5%.
Left-wing party Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) enjoyed a slight increase to 11%.
Far right-wing party Nowa Prawica JKM, led by political scene veteran Janusz Korwin-Mikke, shed part of the recent strong gains with support down by 3 pps to 8%.
Support for leftist-liberal party Twoj Ruch (Your Movement), formerly Palikot Movement, increased slightly to 3%, still below the 5% threshold required to enter the parliament.
The poll was conducted via phone on July 11-12 on a sample of 1,100 Poles.
