While support for the Center and Reform Parties dropped slightly in February, they nonetheless remain Estonia's most popular, the results of a poll commissioned by ERR and conducted by Turu-uuringute AS show.
Statistically significant changes compared to January figures did not occur. Support for the Center Party and the Reform Party dropped by two percent each, from 31 to 29 and from 25 to 23 percent, respectively.
At their expense, support for the Conservative People's Party of Estonia (EKRE), the Free Party, the Pro Patria and Res Publica Union (IRL) and the non-parliamentary Estonian Greens increased by one percent each. EKRE and the Social Democratic Party (SDE) each had the support of ten percent of those polled, while the Free Party was supported by eight percent and IRL by seven percent of respondents. The Greens earned the most support out of non-parliamentary parties — two percent.
The total amount of support enjoyed by the current coalition — consisting of Center, SDE and IRL — and opposition — made up of Reform, EKRE and the Free Party — remained the same month-over-month, with a total of 46 percent of respondents supporting coalition parties and 41 percent supporting opposition parties.
Similarly to January, 33 percent of respondents expressed no preference, however negative attitudes have grown, with 16 percent uninterested in voting for anyone.
Turu-uuringute AS conducted the ERR-commissioned survey by polling 1,002 people in their homes. The margin of error with such a sample size is ±3.1 percent.
