Bulgaria’s GERB Lags behind Socialists - Poll
Bulgarians remain divided in their approval or disapproval of the two biggest parties in the country - the opposition center-right GERB and the left-wing Socialist party, according to a freshly released poll of the Sova Harris agency.
The poll has been commissioned by Bulgarian Pressa (Press) daily.
If the elections were to be held now, the formerly-ruling centrist and opposition Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB, would gather 17.9% (1 million ballots) of the vote, while the Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP, will get 20.9% (1.1 – 1.2 million ballots).
The only other parties likely to pass the 4% election threshold and enter the country's next parliament are the liberal, predominantly ethnic Turkish Movement for Rights and Freedoms with 6%, the recently-founded right-leaning Reformist Block (including Bulgaria for Citizens of former EU Commissioner, Meglena Kuneva, which came close to 4% at the last vote) with 7.6% and the recenlty launched party Bulgaria without Censorship of controversial TV journalist Nikolay Barekov with 4.8%.
The extreme nationalist party Ataka, currently in the Parliament, would get only 2.1% and its biggest rival, the nationalist National Front for Salvation of Bulgaria, NFSB, which came close to 4% in the May 12 early elections, would garner 2.3%.
There are also separate results for another party in the Reformist Block, Democrats for Strong Bulgaria, DSB, which would get 1.3%.

Tania, that Sova institute is a dumb tool of the invisible, to the simple eye that is, oligarchs in BG. Their most recent masterpiece is the ambiguous "party/movement for free speech" of the pseudo trash journalist Nicolay Biurekov (pardon Barekov), who announced his movement, or whatever you want to call it, barely a week ago. Yet miraculously now we are presented with data giving him at the polls 4.8%. Hilarious to say the least. Currently 99% of the Bulgarians have no idea who/what that party/movement is supposed to be. The scum of a Sova "Institute" has no shame and lacks even the necessary patience to wait lousy few months, so that the garbage "research" it spits could at least remotely look like something credible. What a shame.

And if anyone believes that; pigs have wings!!
And besides that: who did they call to survey?? These are very scant presumptions.
