Poll suggests Social Democrats have caught up with ANO party

The Social Democrats are closing the gap on the ANO party led by businessman Andrej Babiš, according to a poll conducted by the ppm factum agency. According to the survey, the two parties would tie first place in general elections with equal support of 21.6 percent of the vote. The Communist Party would come third with 14.3 percent, followed by TOP 09 with 10.5 percent. The Civic and the Christian Democrats would also pass the five-percent threshold to enter the lower house, unlike the Greens, the Pirates and the Dawn Party. The Social Democrats had long been trailing the high riding ANO party.
