Half of the Romanians say that they would definitely vote in the parliamentary elections. PSD ranks first in voting intentions, with 31%, followed by PNL and AUR. The PNL-AUR difference is below 1 percent, according to an INSCOP survey commissioned by News.ro and conducted during September 15-22.
Half of those questioned in the survey say that they would certainly go to vote if parliamentary elections were held next Sunday, but almost a quarter of them say that they would certainly not go to exercise their right to vote.
The intention to go to vote was evaluated on a scale from 1 – definitely NO to 10 – definitely YES, the question being: “If there were parliamentary elections next Sunday, how sure are you that you would go to vote?”
On the scale from 1 to 10, where 1 means “definitely no” and 10 “definitely yes”, 23.7% of Romanians chose 1, 1.8% of Romanians chose 2, 1.7% chose 3, 1.8% chose 4, 6.8% chose 5, 1.8% chose 6, 2.7% chose 7. 5.3% indicated 8, 2.5% 9 and 50.1 % indicates 10.
The share of those who choose grade 10, – “sure yes” is very high compared to the actual attendance recorded in the previous polls.
Regarding voting intentions, the question concerned a fixed list of parties: “If parliamentary elections were held next Sunday and the following political parties/alliances participated, which party/alliance would you vote for?”
In the case of respondents who expressed their preference for a party from the list and declared that they would definitely go to the vote (37.8% of the sample), 31% would vote with PSD, 20.4% would opt for PNL, 19.7 % would vote with AUR, and 12% with USR.
