Ruling coalition maintains lead in voter support poll
Poland's ruling United Right coalition would win an election held now with 37.6 percent of the vote, a recent survey by the Estymator pollster has shown.
The main opposition grouping, the centrist Civic Coalition, would place second with 29.1 percent, followed by the far-right Confederation party with 11.2-percent support.
Poland 2050 and the Polish People's Party (PSL), which will fight in this autumn's general election as a coalition called the Third Way, would be backed by 9.8 percent of respondents.
Also taking seats in parliament would be the New Left coalition, with 8.9-percent voter support.
Other groupings would remain below the 5-percent parliamentary threshold.
The declared turnout was 59 percent.
The poll results would give the United Right 205 seats in the 460-seated Sejm (lower house of parliament), which means it would be unable to secure a parliamentary majority.
The Civic Coalition would get 143 seats, the Confederation party 47, the Third Way 36, the New Left 28, and other groupings one.
The computer-assisted survey was run on September 8-9 for the DoRzeczy.pl website on a selected group of 1,075 Poles who had declared their intention to vote in the coming elections.
