Pulse Poll: SYRIZA overtakes PASOK in second place, New Democracy at 35.5%

Stefanos Kasselakis, Nikos Androulakis

The majority is firmly in favour of the bill to establish non-state universities. More than 50% of PASOK voters say the bill is going positively "with some improvements."

The dominance of the ruling New Democracy and Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis was recorded in a Pulse Poll presented on SKAI's main bulletin. At the same time, the poll shows SYRIZA recording gains after their recent Congress and PASOK recorded marginal losses.

In the lead-up to the European elections, ND and SYRIZA appear to have the most determined voters - 82% of those who say they intend to vote for them say they will definitely go to the polls, while in PASOK, the percentage of those who say they will definitely go to vote drops to 76%, with 17% saying they will "probably" go to the polls.

In the suitability for prime minister, Mitsotakis dominates with 34% - much higher than the intention to vote for ND - while SYRIZA's Stefanos Kasselakis is chosen by 10%, leaving in third place Nikos Androulakis who receives 8%, i.e. a percentage much lower than that of his party.

It is noted that Pulse also records an increase for the right-wing Hellenic Solution about the poll made at the end of January. However, it remains in 5th place, behind the Communist Party of Greece (KKE). Niki also shows an increase, as does the New Left, which in this poll also shows that it has a serious chance of being represented in the European Parliament.

The "transformation" of SYRIZA's electorate is illustrated by the response of those who say they intend to vote for Alexis Tsipras in the European elections, regarding who was strengthened in the recent congress: 58% answer that Mr Kasselakis was strengthened and only 19% that Tsipras came out strengthened.

"Yes" to non-state Higher Education Institutions"

The majority of public opinion firmly favouring the bill to establish non-state HEIs. However, high percentages of opposition and significant percentages are recorded in favour of campus occupations. Interestingly, in contrast to the "no" line chosen by PASOK, 55% of the party's voters state that they consider the bill in the right direction "with some improvements."
