Polls give Polish President Andrzej Duda a massive advantage to win the upcoming presidential election and nothing points to him losing that support even if the elections were to take place in August, for example. This is mostly due to the weakness of the opposition candidates, mainly Małogrzata Kidawa-Błońska (PO) and Robert Biedroń.
Kidawa-Błońska has lost her and her party’s voter base through a series of ill-conceived moves and declarations. The left’s candidate, Biedroń, meanwhile, seems to not even want to participate in the elections.
Polish People’s Party Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz and independent Szymon Hołownia have thus gained support in the current political environment. Chances for either of them winning in the second round of elections with Duda do exist, but are probably theoretical, given that the current pandemic situation benefits the incumbent.
While others are forced to conduct their campaigns through online videos, Duda can use all the benefits which come from being the head of state.
