Poll: Social Democrats maintain margin in new poll

The Social Democrats maintain a large margin over their competitors, according to a poll by the TNS Aisa for Czech TV released on Sunday. The survey suggests that the party would receive 28 percent of the vote, followed by the Communists and the Ano group, each with 12.5 percent. The conservative TOP 09 party would win some 11 percent of the vote, the Civic Democrats 6.5 percent and the Christian Democrats 6 percent. The poll suggests that the populist Dawn of Direct Democracy would receive 5 percent of the vote, just enough to enter the lower house.
