Fresh Poll Shows 4% Margin between Major Bulgarian Parties
There is currently a 4% margin between the two major parties in Bulgaria, BSP and GERB, according to the latest poll.
The poll was conducted by the Afis agency and cited by the Bulgarian Pressa (Press) daily.
If parliamentary elections were to be held now, 22% would vote for the ruling, left-wing Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP and 18% - for the formerly-ruling, opposition and centrist Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria party, GERB.
GERB has lost 1% support since the agency's last study in September.
According to Afis, 5% would vote for the liberal, predominantly ethnic Turkish party Movement for Rights and Freedoms, DPS, 5% will go to the recently-founded right-wing Reformist Bloc, and 3% - to the populist movement "Bulgaria without Censorship of controversial former TV journalist Nikolay Barekov.
"This result dims future prospects for GERB to return to the level from February - about 30% support. This 10-12% was lost in two steps - after the sudden resignation of its leader Boyko Borisov as Prime Minister in February, and after the early general elections in May," said sociologist Chavdar Naydenov from Afis.
The poll has been conducted between December 4 and 8.

These polls demonstrate that despite all the anti-revolutionary protests, the Bulgarian people are sensible and still put their trust in the party that for 60 of the last 70 years has successfully created the wealth, infrastructure, public services, judicial system and equality we all enjoy today. Bravo Bulgaria!
Bravo, more good news.
GERB are loosing support because they resigned (cowards) and are politically invisible ( lazy) the other facist parties will probably pick up their support leaving fragmented and ineffective groups of right wing facists.
GERB keep on doing nothing, it is something you are really good at.
