Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A new opin­ion poll, con­ducted by the Univer­sity of Mace­do­nia for Skai, puts con­ser­va­tive New Democ­racy 11.5 per­cent­age points ahead of leftist SYRIZA, which leads the rul­ing coali­tion, with six in 10 re­spon­dents deem­ing that last year’s ref­er­en­dum on aus­ter­ity harmed the coun­try.

In the poll, 28.5 per­cent of re­spon­dents said they would vote for ND if elec­tions were held now com­pared to 17 per­cent for SYRIZA. Ne­o­fas­cist Golden Dawn polled in third place with 8 per­cent of the vote fol­lowed by the Com­mu­nist Party with 6 per­cent and PASOK with 4.5 per­cent. Union of Cen­trists gar­nered 3 per­cent of the vote fol­lowed by far-left An­tarsya, cur­rently not in Par­lia­ment with 2.5 per­cent, In­de­pen­dent Greeks with 2 per­cent and To Po­tami with 1.5 per­cent.

An over­whelm­ing 86 per­cent of those ques­tioned said they were not sat­is­fied with the gov­ern­ment while 69 per­cent of re­spon­dents who voted SYRIZA said they were dis­sat­is­fied.
