60% of Bulgarians Disapprove of Socialist-Led Govt - Poll
Voter confidence in the Bulgarian government stands at 30% and the disapproval is twice as high, according to a recent poll.
The poll has been conducted by "Gallup International" between October 3 and 10, among 1013 Bulgarians of voting age by direct interviews at home.
When asked whether the government should resign, equal number of respondents - 41% responded "yes" and nearly the same percentage said "no." The poll shows that half of Bulgarians, aged between 18 and 55, want the Socialist-led government of Plamen Oresharski to resign. The Cabinet relies on strong support of Bulgarians over 55 years of age as 62% of them believe the government should continue to work and finish its term.
41% the respondents support antigovernment protests, while 45% expressed disapproval. Only 27% of citizens support the counter-protests in support of the government and 56% are firmly against them.
A significant number of people in the poll, 68%, were adamant that they would not participate in the protests against the government. 22% have expressed willingness to participate.
"For four months now, polls produce a similar picture of public attitudes. They have stabilized some after a period of scandals in the months after the election. This in no way detracts from the high level of public concern and protest potential remains significant, "says Parvan Simeonov from Gallup.

Hello Agent Picadilly, I agree with you, I look forward to the trial on the printing of extra ballot papers for the May elections and also for news on why the GERB President has a million dollars in an account in Cyprus?
I will not call GERB thieves and crooks yet but I want these matters to end up in court so that the truth will emerge.
Seedy, the people of Bulgaria have spoken and overwhelmingly support our current government of experts. The previous government were all thieves and it will take for our new prime minister and his team to sort out the mess left by GERB. Let us pray they get two full terms of power to implement the much needed improvements.
Sadly, Mr Optimistic Double-speak, it shows that certain percentages of those surveyed seem to agree with the bizarre view you and other nutters have of the political realities here. Unfortunately for you, the con-men real estate agents have had no luck in the figures "proving" that property prices are rocketing and neither will you in your quest to spread the lies that people want a government of thieves and gangsters, and their brainwashed hangers-on and apologists like your good self....
"The poll shows that half of Bulgarians, aged between 18 and 55, want the Socialist-led government of Plamen Oresharski to resign."
So 50% of people in this age group don't want the Government to resign.
"The Cabinet relies on strong support of Bulgarians over 55 years of age as 62% of them believe the government should continue to work and finish its term. "
And a majority in this age group don't want the government to resign.
So looking at this poll the majority of Bulgarians don't want the Government to resign.
Novinite, please, please stop publishing "poll statistics" that are brilliantly crafted by agencies like Gallup, Sova and the rest in line. Firstly, it is a well known fact that those agencies cook the results conforming the expectations of those who pay the bills. Secondly it is also a well known fact, that able to pay for and to have such a research at any given moment, are only the communists/oligarchs, who should be seen as one entity with tight mutual interest and relations. The "poll studies" are in fact the same old and proven formula for modeling public opinions by pouring the right amount of cash at the entrance and expecting satisfactory results at the end.
