New Opinion Poll Shows Uncertainty of Greek Election Results

pollAn opinion poll on Wednesday indicates an increasingly close race in Greece’s upcoming parliamentary elections.
New Democracy has shrunk the gap from SYRIZA to just 0.4% with the former garnering 22.6% of the intended vote against SYRIZA’s 23%. In another poll on Friday, respondents gave SYRIZA a 1.5% lead.
A significant portion of respondents indicated their lack of faith in the country’s political leaders. 37% of respondents claimed they do not trust former Greek Prime Minister and SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras or New Democracy leader Evangelos Meimarakis. Tsipras has the support of 32% of the respondents while Meimarakis 28%.
SYRIZA’s former coalition partner, the Independent Greeks (ANEL), were once again unable to yield enough support to enter the Greek parliament, garnering 2% of the intended vote. A minimum of 3% of the Greek vote is required for a party to secure seats in parliament.
Former SYRIZA MP Panagiotis Lafazanis’ Popular Unity gained a 3.9% while the Centrists Union would also be in parliament, according to the poll, with the support of 3.6% of Greek voters.
A significant 14% of respondents claimed they have not decided who they will support on September 20. The remaining parties of the last Greek parliament all look set to be part of the next parliament. Golden Dawn had 6.1% of the respondents’ vote, the Greek Communist Party (KKE) had 5.5%, “To Potami” had 4.4% and PASOK had 4.2%.
