The extreme right-wing Golden Dawn party has established itself in third position with a 10% share, leaving behind PASOK and Independent Greeks with 8% each, Democratic Left at 7% and the Communist Party last with a 5.5% share.
Voters also consider Antonis Samaras to be the most appropriate PM, with a 48% share, compared to Alexis Tsipras’ 24% approval rating. When voters were asked though who they thought would win an election, SYRIZA came first with 44%, leaving New Democracy in second place with 39%.
