The Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) follows with 8.5%, while "There Is Such a People" (TISP) is on the brink of entering the National Assembly with 3.8%.
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.
