The countdown to the elections has already started and polls are popping up on a daily basis.

They all look pretty much alike with their anticipation of a fierce battle between Syriza and New Democracy, although there are some that give a comfortable lead to Alexis Tsipras' party.

The polls predict that Panos Kamenos' Independent Greeks won't make it to parliament this time round. They also show a large number of undecided voters.

  • Metron Analysis for Parapolitika: A derby with just 1% margin

A derby between Syriza and New Democracy and an eight-party parliament without the Independent Greeks, but with Panagiotis Lafazanis is shown by the survey of Metron Analysis commissioned by Parapolitika daily. The poll shows a majority of those who want Greece to remain in the euro area, and another one of those rejecting the dilemma "for" or "against" the memorandum.

 

Asked whom they would vote for, respondents answered as follows:

  • SYRIZA - 22.2%
  • New Democracy - 21.2%
  • Golden Dawn - 6.4%
  • Potami - 5.1%
  • Communist Party - 4.5%
  • PASOK - 4.1%
  • Vassilis Leventis' Union of Centrists - 3.8%
  • Popular Unity - 3.1%

The Independent Greeks remain outside parliament with only 1.7% of the vote. 11.2% of respondents have yet to decide for whom they will vote.

Asked regardless of whom they will vote for, what they think the election outcome will be, respondents replied:

  • SYRIZA - 29%
  • New Democracy - 27.8%
  • Golden Dawn - 8.3%
  • Potami - 6.7%
  • Communist Party - 5.9%
  • PASOK - 5.4%
  • Union of Centrists - 4.9%
  • Popular Unity - 4.1%
  • Independent Greeks - 2.3%

If these forecasts turned into reality, SYRIZA would have received 129 seats in parliament, New Democracy - 75, Golden Dawn - 23, Potami - 18, the Communist Party - 16, PASOK - 15, the Union of Centrists - 13, and Popular Unity - 11.

At the same time, 79% say they want their country to remain in the Eurozone, while 17% prefer a return to the drachma.

73% believe that the "for" or "against" the memorandum dilemma doesn't make any sense, 18% define themselves as opponents of the memorandum while 6% support it.

55% of respondents believe that Alexis Tsipras did the right thing by signing the agreement while 40% said he made a mistake.
