Poll: difference between ND and SYRIZA dropped to 10.5%

The difference between the ruling New Democracy and the main opposition SYRIZA has narrowed to 10.5% in the preferences of potential voters, as high energy prices and runaway price increases worry 47% of Greeks.

At the same time, Greeks seem to reject the possibility of a coalition government with a technocrat as prime minister, while most of them would prefer a 2- or 3-party coalition government, the poll showed.

In a public opinion poll conducted by MARC for the ANT1 TV channel between February 8 and 12, 2022, with a sample of 1,037 people across the country, 47% of Greeks cited “rising prices” as their main cause of concern. Pandemic was reported by 24.2% of respondents, crime by 18. Other issues such as “national issues” scored 4.5%, migration – 2.6% and natural disasters – 2.5%.

When asked what kind of government they prefer, the Greeks answered like this:

The one-party ND received 26.9%, the one-party SYRIZA 11.1%, the SYRIZA-KINAL coalition government 15.7% and the ND-KINAL 10.8%.

The government of technocrats, supported by ND-SYRIZA-KINAL, received 7%, while the one-party government with KINAL received 2.8%.

Kyriakos Mitsotakis is the most popular prime minister with 47.2%, followed by Nikos Androulakis (KINAL) with 44.2%, Alexis Tsipras with 31%, Dimitris Koutsoumbas (KKE) with 27.4%, Janis Varoufakis (MeRA25) with 22, 7% and Kyriakos Velopoulos Greek Solution with 18.4%, according to the MARC survey.

In Greek intention to vote for him, ND remains first with 31.5%, followed by SYRIZA with 21%, KINAL with 14.6%, KKE 5.2%, Greek Solution 4.6% and MeRA25 with 2.5%. Undecided – 12.2%.

Barring anything unexpected, the parliamentary elections should be held in late spring/early summer 2023, when their time comes up.
