Poll suggests Social Democrats would win election, Zeman party would enter lower house

The Social Democrats would come first in general elections with 24.6 of the vote if they were held this month, suggests a poll conducted by the ppm factum agency. The Civic Democrats placed second in the survey, with 15.6 percent backing, just ahead of their rivals on the right TOP 09 on 14.5 percent. The Communists would garner 13.8 percent support, the poll indicates. The Citizens’ Rights Party-Zemanites of president elect Miloš Zeman would enter the lower house on 7.4 percent, as would the Christian Democrats with the same tally.
