Ruling coalition maintains lead in latest poll
The United Right ruling coalition continues to hold a lead over the centrist Civic Coalition (KO), Poland's main opposition bloc, a new poll shows.
Poland's ruling conservative party Law and Justice (PiS) along with its small ally Solidary Poland is still 6.5 percentage points ahead of its main rival, the KO, according to the IBRiS survey for the onet.pl website published on Friday.
If general elections were to be carried out now, the United Right could count on 32.9 percent of the vote while the KO would be backed by 26.4 percent of those polled.
The ruling coalition lost 0.9 percentage point and the KO 1.2 percentage points compared to last month's poll.
According to Onet, the ruling coalition would be unable to form a majority government with such an election result.
Third place was taken by the Left with 9.4 percent of the vote, down from 10.1 percent in November. It was followed by the centre-right party Poland 2050, backed by 9.2 percent of respondents. In November, it was supported by 9.6 percent.
The other party that would cross the 5-percent threshold required for parliamentary representation was the pro-agrarian Polish People's Party, which was supported by 6.2 percent of respondents (down by 0.4 percentage point).
Next came the far-right Confederation party with 5.5 percent of the vote, up from 4.3 percent in November.
Over ten percent of the respondents were undecided. The expected turnout would be 57.2 percent.
IBRiS carried out the survey on 1,100 Poles on December 7 and 8.
