The latest public opinion poll in Slovenia, conducted by Ninamedia for commercial broadcaster POP TV and the daily Dnevnik on a sample of 700 adults, shows that the government approval has plummeted below 20%, while at the same time the SMC come second to the Democratic Party (SDS).

More specifically, the government approval dropped to 18.1%, with its work assessed as unsuccessful by 70.4% of the respondents, while 11.5% stated unable to access its performance.

What’s more, the SDS has overtaken the SMC in popularity with 14.5%, compared to the latter’s 13.8%, from 18.5% that was in the last elections.

The junior coalition Social Democrats (SD) are third with 8.7%, followed by the opposition United Left (ZL) with 8%, the Pensioners’ Party (DeSUS) and New Slovenia (NSi).

President Borut Pahor remains the most popular politician, followed by MEP Tanja Fajon who rose to second place, with SD leader Dejan Židan coming third. Slovenia’s European Commissioner Violeta Bulc is fourth, with Cerar falling to fifth.
