Conflicting Results in Greek Opinion Polls 3 Weeks Ahead June-17 Elections

Conflicting are the results of the two latest public opinion polls ahead the June-17 elections. Two different polls give the first place in ‘voting intention’ to two different parties. At the same time the majority of respondents believe that conservative Nea Democratia will win the elections.

Results from  public opinion poll conducted by VPRC for private KONTRA TV:

SYRIZA 28.5% – ND 26% – PASOK 12.5% – INDEPENDENT GREEKS 7% – DEMOCRATIC LEFT 7%

CHRYSI AVGI 5.5.% – KKE 5% – CREATION AGAIN/DRASI 3%

Below 3% threshold ECO-GREENS 2% – ANTARSYA 1% – LAOS 0.5%

35.4% say, they believe ND will win the elections, while 27.2% say they believe the elections winner will be SYRIZA.

Results from public opinion poll conducted by RASS for free-press newspaper METRO:

ND  23.6% – SYRIZA 21.4% – PASOK 13.1% – INDEPENDENT GREEKS 5.8% – DEMOCRATIC LEFT 6.2%

CHRYSI AVGI 3.8% – KKE 4.8%

Below 3% threshold ECO-GREENS 1.8% – LAOS 0.8% – – CREATION AGAIN/DRASI 2.4%

Undecided is 13.1%.

60.6% say, they believe ND will win the elections, while 35.2% say they believe the elections winner will be SYRIZA.

To the question: which party will secure that Greece will stay in the euro, say:

ND 32.8% – PASOK 16.2% – SYRIZA 12.1%

In a third poll conducted by METRON ANALYSIS for ANT1 TV the difference between SYRIZA and ND is marginal as concern to “voting estimation”

SYRIZA 27.2% – ND 27% – PASOK 14.8% – INDEPENDENT GREEKS 7.2% – DEMOCRATIC LEFT 6.2%

CHRYSI AVGI 4.9% – KKE 5.2% – CREATION AGAIN/DRASI 3%

Below 3% threshold: ECO-GREENS 1.6% – LAOS 1.2%

Far-right LAOS that joined PASOK-ND coalition government in winter and for a short time saw its rates to collapse, especially after ND managed to grasp some of LAOS top brass.

ND-leader Antonis Samaras’ make an opening to neo-liberal Democratic Alliance seem to have positive results.

One more poll is expected to be published on tomorrow Sunday.

  1. There is enough blame to go around regarding who got us into this mess, (mostly the PASOK of the 80’s and what it insinuated into the Greek psyche, IMHO), however not enough is being said about the heavy responsibilities of the so called ‘progressive’ forces in general, in turning Greece into one of the last vestiges of a Soviet style economy, by NEVER allowing the changes and reforms that were desperately needed to be introduced over the years.

    And what do the Greeks poll? Large segments STILL seem to believe in leftist, statist ‘theories’ and populist stupidities like those being espoused by Tsipras and SYRIZA – still hoping to get a job or handout from the government, I can only suppose!

    As for the center right, they have been criminally, weak when they had the power, in not having taken on the vested interests that were looting and exploiting the economy. Not only that, but on many occasions they joined in the feast!

    Hellas to megaleo sou!

      as there is no solution in local politicians that’s why Merkel abd Co tried the ‘EU governor” option.

      • I for one, wouldn’t have a problem with that, as long as the Greek people accepted it.

        Of course, Greeks will not accept it, which is why we are saddled with the politicians we have. I only hope that the elections will produce a viable, stable government that can at least try and pull Greece, kicking and screaming if need be, into the 21st century and real progress at last.

        Not an easy task by any measure.

      • Imho that “governor” idea is a very bad one. Not only do the Greek people not accept it, but it certainly isn’t a sustainable solution to “outsource” that job. Greece has finally to become able to repsonsible govern itself, that’s the goal! To accomplish that necessites major political changes. It’s up to the voters, not the EU, to deliver these. If that means, Syriza heading the government, so be it. Still better than the status quo which will only result in more years of painful underachievements.

    • @Damianos – Bravo! This is one of the best and shortest descriptions about our current plight.
      If only everybody could agree on this. Then it might be possible to find a solution.

    It is quite clear that only Samaras can lead Greece . He was forced to support the bailout because the alternative certain death for the economy but he argued that it must be renegotiated to include a component for growth. I know of no company any certainly no country that saved its way to a profit or a surplus.
    Antonis has 35 years of public service and has made many personal sacrifices for Greece and will make more Only he has the experience to renegotiate and the confidence of the leaders of the EU to be successful in those negotiations for the Greek people . Always a bit of a maverick he has the education and training to lead a new Greece to prosperity without sacrificing the social needs of his people
    Without Greece the euro fails, even it’s creator would agree ,but without funding of 8 to 10 B euros each month, for the next few months the government can meet it;s obligations
