Poland's ruling United Right coalition would win a parliamentary election with 36.1 percent of the vote, a new survey by the Estymator pollster for the DoRzeczy website has shown.

Main opposition grouping Civic Coalition (KO) would place second with 29.4 percent backing, followed by The Left party with 10.1 percent.

Poland 2050 would receive 8.2 percent support and the right-wing Confederation (Konfederacja) party would be supported by 7.4 percent of the voters.

Next came the Polish People's Party (PSL), which could count on 6.9 percent of the vote.

All of the remaining parties would fall below the 5-percent threshold needed to take seats in the Sejm, lower house of parliament.

The estimated turnout for an election stood at 55 percent.

Estymator ran the survey on January 12-13 on a representative national sample of 1,029 adult Poles.
