The governing conservatives in Poland have opened up a 10-point polling lead over its main opposition ahead of the general election later this year; however, such a result would not give any political party the authority to rule alone.

The latest polling by Social Changes for the wPolityce.pl news site brings good news for the United Right coalition, led by Jarosław Kaczyński’s Law and Justice (PiS) party, which increased its lead over the Civic Coalition led by former Prime Minister Donald Tusk.

A total of 39 percent of respondents declared their intention to vote for the United Right/Law and Justice, up two percentage points from the previous poll. The Civic Coalition/Civic Platform (PO) attained 29 percent of the votes, up one percentage point.

Meanwhile, the hard-right Confederation party, widely predicted to become a kingmaker should the election produce a political stalemate, saw its support fall, while support for The Left also dwindled.

The Confederation lost four percentage points, dropping to 10 percent of the vote share, while The Left dropped one percentage point to 9 percent.

Support for Poland 2050, led by Szymon Hołownia, rose by one percentage point to 6 percent of the vote. The Polish People’s Party (PSL) also gained with 5 percent of voter support, two percentage points more than previously.

The declared turnout of 64 percent remained the same, revealing a substantial number of disillusioned voters are still up for grabs in what is expected to be a tight and explosive election.
