Record level of support for PiS

Poland's governing party Law and Justice (PiS) kept its voter support in February at the record level of 43%, achieved after a 7-pps jump in the prior month, while its closest rival, opposition party Civic Platform (PO), edged up 1 ppt m/m to 20%, a survey by pollster IBRiS for the daily Rzeczpospolita showed.
PiS support thus remained unaffected by the recent controversy surrounding the anti-defamation bill, the paper remarks.
Among smaller groupings, liberal opposition grouping Nowoczesna suffered a further support decline, by 3 pps to 5%, the level required for parliamentary representation. Agrarian polish Peoples Party (PSL) enjoyed a 1-ppt support gain to 6%. Backing for the eclectic anti-establishment Kukiz'15 grouping stayed at the January level of 6%. Leftist Democratic Left Alliance (SLD), which remains outside of the parliament, also held flat at 7%.
Election results based on the poll would earn PiS 269 seats in the Sejm, a huge advantage over the political rivals, but still below the constitutional majority, the paper adds.
