For Nicolae Ciucă – PNL, 11.9% of voters would opt (11.5% in May), for George Simion – AUR 11.2% (13.5% in May), and for Kelemen Hunor – UDMR 3.4% (5.5% in May). 1.2% say they would vote for another candidate (0.8% in May).

Mircea Geoană vs. Nicolae Ciucă

If Mircea Geoană and Nicolae Ciucă were to reach the 1st and 2nd round of the presidential elections, 63.7% of those who expressed their preference for a candidate would vote for the Deputy General Secretary of NATO, and 36.3% for the PNL leader.

Mircea Geoană vs. Elena Lasconi

In a hypothetical confrontation in the 2nd round of the presidential elections between Mircea Geoană and Elena Lasconi, 66.2% of those who expressed their preference for a candidate would vote for the Deputy Secretary General of NATO, and 33.8% on the USR leader.

Marcel Ciolacu vs. Elena Lasconi

If Marcel Ciolacu and Elena Lasconi were to reach the second round of the presidential elections, 58% of those who expressed their preference for a candidate would vote for the current prime minister, and 42% for the USR leader.

Nicolae Ciucă vs. Elena Lasconi

The voting intention for the presidential elections surprises a series of changes in the options in the conditions where, compared to last month, Elena Lasconi from the USR is measured for the first time in 2024, and Dacian Cioloş was no longer measured because he announced that he was retiring from active political life. Under these conditions, the ranking undergoes certain changes. Mircea Geoană remains the leader in the voting options in the 1st round, with a higher percentage than in May, and leads by far in all the second round finals in which he was measured. The Deputy Secretary of NATO is followed by Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu who maintains his percentage of approximately 18%, almost 9 points away from the first place. On the 3rd place is Elena Lasconi with 3.5 percent less than Marcel Ciolacu. The USR leader is followed by Diana Şoşoacă, in slight growth, Nicolae Ciucă in stagnation and George Simion in decline. The novelty of the measurement from the end of June is Elena Lasconi, who registers in a better lane compared to the former USR president, also having a growth potential in the conditions of a significantly lower notoriety (60%), compared to the rest of the candidates who reach the majority their notoriety of 90% or above this percentage“, says Remus Ştefureac, director of INSCOP Research.
