The latest poll conducted by TNS OBOP for Gazeta Wyborcza shows that the ruling Civic Platform's (PO) support is continuing to wane, with main opposition party Law and Justice (PiS) now just two percentage points behind it.
Some 27 percent of those polled expressed support for PO while 25 percent favored PiS. Twenty-two percent claimed to be undecided between the two.
Since the percentage of PiS supporters has not changed dramatically, it can be assumed that it is mostly disenchanted PO supporters who are joining the ranks of the undecided. The same sentiment is mirrored by Donald Tusk's own falling ratings (CBOS polls show that 68 percent say they don't support the prime minister).
The poll results are reportedly not causing too much worry within PO, since many in the party believe that once the effects of their (currently unpopular) reforms become more evident, undecided voters will return to supporting them.
