CVVM: Civic Democrats and Public Affairs at new polling low

The Civic Democrat and Public Affairs parties have reached their lowest polling numbers yet, according to a new survey conducted by the CVVM agency. The poll puts the senior coalition Civic Democratic Party down three points at 18.5%, and suggests a mere 1.5% for Public Affairs, the junior coalition party which is new to Parliament but has been hit hard by corruption scandals throughout the year. Only the coalition TOP 09 party has improved its popularity, gaining four points to surpass the Communist Party. As polls have indicated throughout the year, the Social Democrats would win elections held today with 34% of the vote.
