ATHENS – Just ahead of a second round of Parliamentary elections for a Greek President, an opinion poll shows the major opposition Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) has opened a seven percent lead on the ruling New Democracy Conservatives of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras.

In the survey by Public Issue SYRIZA now has 38.5 percent – down two percent from last month – but New Democracy has faded to 29.5 percent. In a surprising third, displanting the ultra far-right Golden Dawn which is now sixth with 6 percent, was the populist To Potami (The River) at 8.5 percent.

Then came the KKE Communists with 6.5 percent, the government coalition partner the PASOK Socialists at 6 percent, Golden Dawn, the Independent Greeks (ANEL) at 3.5 percent and the vanishing Democratic Left (DIMAR) which has only 1 percent, far below the 3 percent threshold needed to enter Parliament in the next elections.

Only three percent said they preferred any other party. Even worse for Samaras, t0 the question “which party would win if elections were held tomorrow,” focusing on the two major parties, 68 percent said SYRIZA and 20 percent said New Democracy.
