SOCIOPOL survey: USL seen getting 63 pct, PDL 17 pct at parliamentary elections

The governing Social Liberal Union (USL) would get 63 percent of the vote if parliamentary elections were held next Sunday and the opposition Democratic Liberals (PDL) would get 17 percent, while in case the parties making up the USL ran on their own, the Social Democrats (PSD) would win 43 percent, the Liberals (PNL) 20 percent and the PDL 15 percent, shows a SOCIOPOL survey sent AGERPRES on Friday. When asked: ‘Should general elections for the Parliament be held next Sunday, how much interested would you be in such elections?’, 38 percent of the respondents said they would be very much interested, 28 percent said rather interested, 20 percent said very little or not interested at all and 13 percent said they would be rather little interested. Prime Minister Victor Ponta tops the public approval by 42 percent and coming next are Bucharest Mayor Sorin Oprescu with 40 percent and former Liberal Prime Minister Calin Popescu-Tariceanu with 37 percent. According to the same poll, ranking next by ‘Public Figures. Confidence’ (percentage showing pretty much and very much approval) are George Becali (a businessman currently in prison) with 35 percent, Liberal leader and Senate Speaker Crin Antonescu 32 percent, Social Democrat Senator Mircea Geoana 28 percent, Civic Force leader Mihai-Razvan Ungureanu 27 percent, President Traian Basescu 25 percent, Greater Romania Party leader and MEP Corneliu Vadim Tudor 23 percent, Conservative head and Agriculture Minister Daniel Constantin 21 percent, opposition Democratic Liberal (PDL) leader Vasile Blaga 18 percent, PDL’s Elena Udrea 17 percent and PP-DD party leader Dan Diaconescu 15 percent. The poll sample included 1,014 persons representative for the Romanian adult non-institutionalized population and the data was collected over Oct. 5-10 by phone interview. The research carries an error margin of plus or minus 3.1 percent and can be 95 percent trusted.
