The sociological group “Rating” conducted a corresponding survey, asking the Ukrainians that they want to see under the presidency of the head of state.
On this subject, it is written “MFN” referring to “Evaluation“.
The results of the opinion poll showed nothing new: if the presidential elections in Ukraine had been held in mid-May 2020, nothing would have changed. The winner would be outgoing President Vladimir Zelensky. He had the most support in the first and second rounds of the presidential election.
Thus, after the first round, the candidates’ votes would be distributed as follows:
- Vladimir Zelensky – 39.3%
- Yuri Boyko – 13.9%
- Petro Poroshenko – 13.3%
- Yulia Tymoshenko – 8.6%
The other candidates obtain less than 6% of support.
Vladimir Zelensky is supported almost identically in all regions (30% to 33%), but the greatest support in the South is 40%. Easterners are the most favorable to Yuri Boyko – 30%. Petro Poroshenko has the greatest support among residents of the West and the Center – 15% and 14%, respectively. Yulia Tymoshenko is supported almost equally in all regions – from 4% in the East to 9% in the Center.
The situation in the second round would look like this:
- Zelensky-Boyko pair – 75% vs 25%
- Zelensky-Poroshenko pair – 75% versus 25%
- Zelensky-Tymoshenko pair – 74% vs. 26%
In the second round, Zelensky has high support in all regions and easily defeats all candidates.
The survey was conducted from May 12 to 13. The survey involved 3,000 respondents from all regions of Ukraine (except ORDLO and AR Crimea).
Recall that we wrote earlier that the rating of Zelensky and “Servants of the People” continues to fall.
