Poll: Social Democrats would win election easily, support for TOP 09 doubles

In related news, a new poll by the CVVM agency suggests that support for governing coalition member TOP 09, headed by Mr Schwarzenberg, doubled during the presidential elections, jumping from a single-digit to double figures. Support for the centre-right party would rank at 16 percent if elections were held today, mirroring the results of the actual 2010 Parliamentary election when the party received 16.7 percent. The opposition Social Democrats also improved on recent polls and would win the election with 38 percent of the vote. The Communists would come second with 17.5 percent and the ruling Civic Democrats last with 13 percent. According to the survey, no other party would pass the five percent threshold to make it into the Chamber of Deputies.
