PiS support drops but party still leads in latest opinion poll

Law and Justice (PiS), Poland’s ruling party, has seen its lead fall to 30 percent, according to a new opinion poll published on Monday.

The Kantar poll for Gazeta Wyborcza, put PiS on 30 percent, 6 percent more than for the main opposition grouping Civic Coalition.

"This is two percentage points less than a month ago and six points less than a year ago, in October 2020," Gazeta Wyborcza wrote on PiS’s support level.

The poll also found that as many as 78 percent of Poles declared that they will vote.

"Interestingly, today higher election mobilisation is declared by Civic Coalition and Poland 2050 voters, lower by PiS and the Left. PiS has been losing voters for a year," the paper wrote.

The Left has the support of 8 percent while former TV personality Szymon Holownia's Polska 2050 party improved its ratings from 10 to 14 percent. Support for the hard-right Confederation jumped from 6 to 9 percent.

According to the survey, the Polish-PSL Coalition, which would be supported by 4 percent of respondents, and Kukiz'15 with the support of 2 percent, would not break the 5-percent threshold needed to get seats in parliament.

The survey was carried out using CATI interviews, on a representative sample of the total population of Poland aged over 18 on November 16-18, 2021.
