Civic Democrats seen losing support in STEM poll

A survey conducted by the STEM polling agency suggests that support for the centre-right Civic Democratic Party has slumped to its lowest level since March of 2006. The survey results see the Social Democrats strongly in the lead with 27,8 percent of the vote, followed by the Civic Democrats with 18,6 percent. The poll registered a slight dip in support for the Communists with 9,9 percent, while the right-wing TOP 09 has improved its standing with 9,3 percent as has Public Affairs with 8,5 percent. Political analysts say that such an outcome would make it near impossible for the Civic Democrats to create a centre right coalition.
