Compared to the previous survey in December, GERB's support has seen a slight increase, while WCC-DB's remains relatively stable. However, "Vazrazhdane" continues to decline, dropping from 11.1% in December to 9.9% in this survey.

The survey also gauged public sentiment regarding the country's situation, with 46% expressing dissatisfaction. However, 37% view the current state of affairs positively, while 17% remain neutral.

Regarding expectations for a smooth transition of power between GERB and WCC-DB, 43% are optimistic, while 40% are skeptical.
