Poll: Civic Democrats increase preferences


A new opinion poll shows that the Civic Democrats, the largest party in the governing coalition, have slightly increased their preferences in August, cutting the lead of the opposition Social Democrats to 5 percent. The survey, conducted by the Median agency in August, suggests that the Social Democrats have the support of 36.8 percent of the electorate, with the Civic Democrats on 31.6 percent. The preferences of the Green Party have slumped down ahead of the party’s congress last weekend from 7 to a mere 4 percent, which is beyond the five-percent threshold to enter the lower house.
