September 2015 Greek legislative election
By George Gilson
An exit poll from today's European Parliament elections in Greece gives main opposition New Democracy a seven percentage point lead over ruling SYRIZA.
The exit poll was conducted by a consortium of Greek polling companies comprised of Alco, Marc, Metron Analysis and MRB. It was released at 7pm Greek time, two hours before the polls closed.
Main opposition New Democracy is 6.3 percentage points ahead of ruling SYRIZA, according to an opinion poll carried out by ALCO for broadcaster Open and published on Monday.
The poll found that ND would garner 29.9 percent of the vote if snap polls were held now compared to 23.6 percent for SYRIZA, with socialist KINAL and neo-Nazi Golden Dawn both coming in third with 5.7 percent.
New Democracy leads SYRIZA by 6.5 percentage points (by extrapolation after excluding those who will abstain or cast spoilt ballots and apportioning the undecided voters proportionately to the parties decided respondents will vote for) - compared to a 6.2 percentage-point spread in December - in a new survey released today and conducted by the Alco polling company for private Open television.
The New Democracy party has a 5.5 point lead over SYRIZA according to a survey of voter intentions by the Prorata polling company published in the leftist Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper on Saturday.
The conservative opposition received 30 percent against 24.5 percent for the ruling leftist party.
