In a recent opinion poll conducted by Social Changes, the ruling United Right (ZP) coalition has emerged as the leading contender, securing 39 percent of the hypothetical vote if an election were held at the present moment. The findings, published in wPolityce on Saturday, offer intriguing insights into the political landscape of Poland, indicating potential shifts in support among key parties.
The main opposition group, Civic Coalition (KO), garnered second place in the poll with 29 percent of the projected vote.
The far-right Confederation party managed to secure 10 percent of the projected vote, securing the third spot in the poll.
Meanwhile, the Left party secured 9 percent of the hypothetical vote, demonstrating its continued presence despite facing a minor decline of 1 percentage point compared to the previous poll. Poland 2050, a party founded by popular entrepreneur Szymon Hołownia, managed to gather 6 percent of the projected vote.
The Polish People’s Party (PSL), with 5 percent of the projected vote, retained a modest yet significant level of support, positioning itself as a potential coalition partner in various political scenarios.
The survey results also unveiled a noteworthy potential partnership: if Poland 2050 were to form a coalition with the Polish People’s Party, dubbed the Third Way, the alliance could expect to gain 9 percent of the projected vote in the upcoming general election scheduled for this autumn.
Comparing the results to a similar poll conducted just a week earlier, the United Right coalition experienced a boost of 2 percentage points, showcasing a strengthening of its appeal among voters. In contrast, the Civic Coalition saw a more modest increase of 1 percentage point in its backing.
On the other hand, the Confederation party experienced a dip in support, losing 4 percentage points from the previous poll. The Left party also saw a slight decline of 1 percentage point in its backing. Poland 2050 and the PSL, on the other hand, managed to improve their results by 1 and 2 percentage points, respectively, indicating a potential rise in their popularity.
It is interesting to note that the respondents’ intention to vote remains consistent, with 64 percent stating that they would participate in the election. This steady turnout rate underscores the enduring commitment of Polish citizens to participate in the democratic process, regardless of potential shifts in party support.
