A third of Czechs would vote for ANO

ANO would win the Czech general election with 33 percent of the votes, if held now, followed by the opposition Pirates and Civic Democrats (ODS) with 19 and 13.5 percent, respectively, according to the latest Kantar CZ election model.

According to the election model, the Social Democrats (ČSSD) would be the fourth strongest party in the Chamber of Deputies, receiving 6.5 percent of the votes. Half a percentage point fewer voters would support the Communists (KSČM). 5.5 percent of voters would vote for the SPD, although in the previous survey, SPD received 9.5 percent. The Christian Democrats (KDU-ČSL) would receive five percent and TOP 09 one percentage point less, 4 percent. According to the model, 3.5 percent of people would vote for STAN.

Therefore, ANO, Pirates, ODS, ČSSD, KSČM, SPD, and KDU-ČSL, which makes seven parties in total, would make it to the Chamber of Deputies, while TOP 09 and STAN would not. KDU-ČSL and SPD are balancing on the entry border, which is 5 percent of votes.

“We can see the return to the trend we saw in autumn, which means strengthening the larger parties at the expense of the smaller ones," said Kantar´s analyst Pavel Ranocha. He added that in March, the rise in SPD preferences was not confirmed. Much of the vote for Tomio Okamura is unstable, according to Ranocha, and support fluctuations can be expected in the future as well.

Kantar CZ's research took place between March 16th and April 5th. Thus, It included important political events such as the expulsion of Václav Klaus Jr. from the Civic Democratic Party (ODS) as well as the national assembly of the Social Democrats (ČSSD). Eight hundred and seventy respondents participated in the research.
