The most recent party ratings have the Center Party and the Reform Party in the lead. Both of them gained support compared with the previous survey. If elections were to be held tomorrow, 29 percent of voters would support the governing Center Party, and 24 percent would support Reform.
Support for each party grew by 2 percent from November to December. The two big parties are followed by the Estonian Conservative People's Party (EKRE) at 12 percent support, and junior coalition partner SDE at 11 percent.
This means that EKRE lost 1 percent and the Social Democrats (SDE) gained 1 percent. The other junior partner in the current coalition, the Pro Patria and Res Publica Union (IRL), had the support of 8 percent of Estonia's voters, according to the survey carried out by Turu-uuringute AS for ERR.
The Free Party as well as the Estonian Greens remained below the 5-percent threshold, both at 3 percent support.
The total support of the governing parties (Center, SDE, and IRL) stood at 48 percent, ahead of the total support of the opposition (Reform, EKRE, and the Free Party) at 39 percent.
The survey also recorded the response of interviewees who have a political preference outside the parties currently in parliament and estimated this to be 13 percent of the total.
Turu-uuringute AS carried out the survey between Nov. 22 and Dec. 5. 1,011 people were interviewed, the results of the survey represent only those respondents who expressed a political preference. 27 percent of respondents did not express a preference. According to the pollster, the survey is accurate to plus-minus 3.1 percent.
