Poll shows SYRIZA edge ahead, low faith in all parties

 

A new poll conducted by Public Issue on behalf of Skai and Kathimerini shows the main leftist opposition SYRIZA to have edged ahead of conservative New Democracy, which leads the ruling coalition, and SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras to have gained in popularity over Prime Minister Antonis Samaras though the latter is still considered the better choice for premier.

According to the survey, which was carried out between May 10 and 15 on a sample of 1,031 Greeks, 28 percent would vote for SYRIZA if elections were held now compared to 27.5 percent for ND. The ultra-right Golden Dawn would draw 11.5 percent of votes with 6.5 percent for PASOK, 6 percent for the rightwing anti-bailout Independent Greeks and 5.5 percent for Democratic Left.
