Divided Poland

Survey shows hard feelings are more on the opposition side

PiS supporters’ approach to opposition supporters are kinder than the approach of opposition supporters towards them, claims a report by the University of Warsaw Research Center on Prejudice. It is important to note that the Centre is known for its Left-wing alignment.

According to the report, supporters of the opposition hold more negative feelings towards supporters of the government than vice versa. At the same time, they feel more aggrieved. The report was made right after the tragic death of Paweł Adamowicz.

“The supporters of opposition parties have more negative stances towards PiS supporters than towards groups which are the least liked in Polish society (Jews, Muslims, refugees, homosexual people and transgender people)."

"Among the supporters of PiS, contact with opposition supporters is connected with positive stances towards them. The more frequent the interactions with opposition voters, the warmer the emotions towards those groups. There is more trust and less dehumanization,” states the report.

The report “Political polarisation in Poland. How much are we divided?” was prepared by Paulina Górska of the University of Warsaw Research Center on Prejudice. 

The Center is headed by Michał Bilewicz, a researcher of “derivate anti-Semitism”.
