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 25.8 percent backing, followed by the right-wing Confederation (Konfederacja) party with 11 percent.

The percentage of United Right supporters fell by 0.3 percentage point from the end of March and of KO voters by 2.1 percentage points. The support of the Confederation rose by 1.1 percentage point.

The Left would receive 10.3 percent support (up by 2 percentage points) and Poland 2050 would be supported by 7.9 percent of the voters (down by 0.2 percentage point).

Next came the Polish People's Party (PSL), which could count on 7.0 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 voter turnout stood at 58 percent.

Estymator ran the computer-assisted survey on April 4 and 5 on a representative national sample of 1,032 adult Poles.
