Presidential nominee for opposition expects four pct of vote: poll

The leader of the opposition, Małgorzata Kidawa-Błońska has seen a considerable dip in popularity and can currently expect a sixth place finish in the upcoming Presidential election according to a survey by the pollster Kantar.

The incumbent President, Andrzej Duda would get the most support, with 59 percent of the vote. However, the biggest change in public opinion according to the survey concerns the PO candidate Małgorzata Kidawa-Błońska who can expect four percent of the vote. That leaves her with the least amount of support from all the candidates polled.

Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz and Szymon Hołownia would both receive seven percent of the vote. Whilst candidate for the Left, Robert Biedroń and Confederation, Krzysztof Bosak would both receive five percent.

Almost half of the respondents (47 pct) stated that they are willing to participate in the upcoming presidential election, with over a quarter of Poles (28 pct) declaring they definitely would. The same amount (47 pct) said they would not be participating in the election, and 28 pct of respondents claimed they were certain about that.

The survey was carried amongst a representative sample of 954 Polish residents aged 18 and over declaring their participation in the elections.

The presidential election is due to take place, via postal voting on May 10.
