The Centre for Urban and Regional Sociology (CURS) has launched an Omnibus survey to track political and social trends in Romania. PSD and PNL remain the main political forces, but also the ones which have lost most against the previous poll.
The CURS poll shows that PSD is ranked first in electoral preferences, with 39%, but by 3% less than the CURS survey in January. At that time, PSD had a 1% drop as compared to November 2017 and by 3.5% against the 2016 election score, realitatea.net reports.
PNL has also fallen in polls, down from 27% in January to 25% at the beginning of May.
ALDE, PSD governing partners, would get 8% of the votes, by 1% below January, but by 2% above November 2017.
USR is slightly higher against the previous CURS survey, up from 5% to 6%.
UDMR also remains at 6%, while PMP remains at 5%, the electoral threshold for being elected in Parliament.
The CURS survey shows that the two former prime ministers and their parties, Victor Ponta and his Pro Romania party, as well as Dacian Cioloş and his Romania Movement party, have reached 3%, each by 1% higher than the previous CURS survey.
According to the survey, over 60% of respondents have a clear voting option for the parliamentary elections.
The survey was conducted during April 27-May 8, on a national sample of 1,067 people, with a statistical error of +/- 3%, and a confidence level of 95%.
