According to the latest ERR-commissioned poll, conducted by the Turu-uuringute AS, the Center Party is the most popular political party in Estonia by a large margin.

If elections took place tomorrow, 28 percent of the people would vote for the party founded by Edgar Savisaar, but currently headed by Kadri Simson.

The Social Democrats have also significantly increased their popularity, from 13 percent last month to 18 percent now.

In a blow to governing Reform Party, their support has dropped further, to just 16 percent. This number is lowest in years and means that the leading political force is currently only the third most popular party in the country. By comparison, in the last election, the party gained almost 27 percent of the votes and even last month, it was still at 18 percent.

Free Party has also gained more approval, at 15 percent, while IRL is unchanged at 9 percent. The Conservative People's Party's (EKRE) support has fallen and now stands at 6 percent.

Reform Party seems to carry the heaviest burden for the unpopularity of many decisions that the coalition has recently taken. Most of the disagreement from the voters and opinion leaders concerns the government's plan to raise excise tax on liquid fuels, which would affect most of the population. However, the Reform Party has been in lower echelons of popularity polls before – yet bounced back in time for elections.
