Poland's main opposition party Law and Justice (PiS) lost 3 pps support to 33% in early August, with ruling party Civic Platform (PO) edging down 1 ppt to 24%, a survey by Homo Homini pollster showed.
Junior coalition partner Polish People’s Party (PSL) saw its support rebound to 6%, above the 5% threshold required for parliamentary representation.
Left-wing party Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) enjoyed a 2 pps increase to 11%. Far right-wing party Nowa Prawica JKM, led by political scene veteran Janusz Korwin-Mikke, held flat at 6%. Support for leftist-liberal party Twoj Ruch (Your Movement), formerly Palikot Movement, remained intact at 2%, well below the 5% threshold required to enter the parliament.
