The Greek electorate appears to have been surprised by the announcement of general elections in September, with a survey showing that the majority of voters are undecided, while SYRIZA’s lead over New Democracy is dwindling.
According to the survey carried out by ProRata and which was published in the Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper, when asked about who intend to vote for in the upcoming elections, the respondents answered the following:
- Undecided – 25.5%
- SYRIZA – 23%
- New Democracy – 19.5%
- Golden Dawn – 6.5%
- KKE – 5%
- PASOK – 4.5%
- The River – 4%
- Popular Union – 3.5%

The president of SYRIZA Alexis Tsipras remains the most popular political leader, followed by New Democracy’s provisional president Evangelos Meimarakis and the head of the River Stavros Theodorakis. The overwhelming majority of voters support the euro and over 50% do not consider the new bailout agreement to be good.
