Ruling party maintains lead in public support poll

Poland's ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party holds pole position in an early September public support survey with 37 percent of declared votes, followed by the Civic Coalition (KO), the main opposition bloc, with 27-percent support.

The Polska 2050 movement headed by TV personality Szymon Hołownia placed third in the survey with 16 percent of the potential vote. The Left (Lewica) placed fourth in the running on 8-percent public support and the right-wing Confederation (Konfederacja) party took the fifth spot with 7 percent of respondents' votes.

The Social Changes pollster asked respondents who they would vote for if parliamentary elections were to be held on Sunday.

The pro-agrarian Polish Peoples Party (PSL), the conservative Kukiz '15 and former Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Gowin's Agreement (Porozumienie) party all fell below the 5-percent threshold needed to enter parliament, gaining 3 percent, 1 percent and 1 percent of the vote, respectfully. A further 1 percent of those surveyed declared their support for other factions.

Of those polled, 71 percent declared they would participate in a general election, while 18 percent declared they would not.

Social Changes conducted the poll between September 3 and September 6, 2021, on a representative sample of 1,051 residents of Poland.
