CCSB Poll: 59 pc for USL, 13 pc for PDL

According to an opinion poll, conducted on March 15-20 by the Sociological Research and Branding Company (CCSB), 74 per cent of Romanians state they are interested in the elections, while 54 per cent claim they would cast their ballots if elections were to take place “now.” The opinion poll was conducted on a sample of 1,004 persons. In what concerns the distribution of votes, USL would win 59 per cent, followed by Dan Diaconescu’s People’s Party with 15 per cent and PDL with 13 per cent. PRM and UDMR would fall below the electoral threshold, with 4 and 3 per cent respectively. In what concerns political views, the distribution is perfectly balanced. 43 per cent prefer the centre, 16 per cent the left wing and 16 per cent the right wing. 25 per cent have no ideology. Sorin Oprescu dominates the rankings when it comes to confidence in politicians, with 42 per cent, followed by Crin Antonescu and Victor Ponta (33 per cent), Mihai Razvan Ungureanu (29 per cent), Calin Popescu Tariceanu (23 per cent), Dan Diaconescu (15 per cent), Traian Basescu and Elena Udrea (10 per cent) and Emil Boc (9 per cent). 58 per cent of respondents are significantly displeased with President Traian Basescu, while 24 per cent are pretty much displeased. 44 per cent believe that PM Ungureanu is “Traian Basescu’s man,” while 15 per cent somehow agree with that assertion. Firemen (95 per cent), the Church (79 per cent) and the Army (77 per cent) continue to top the confidence rankings. Mayoralties are fourth with 57 per cent. The IMF, the justice system, the presidency, the government, parliament and parties are the last in the rankings. 71 per cent of Romanians believe that the country is going in the wrong direction, while 25 per cent believe the contrary. The price of food is the most important on the list of things Romanians are preoccupied with (90 per cent of respondents), followed by the VAT level (89 per cent), the price of energy (87 per cent), corruption in public institutions and the level of taxes and fees (82 per cent). The respondents were also preoccupied with environment issues (69 per cent), the lack of jobs (68 per cent), access to public health services (64 per cent), salary levels (63 per cent), job stability (54 per cent) and pension levels (51 per cent)
