PO will emerge victorious

Polls on election eve say PO will emerge victorious



The Civic Platform (PO) will win Sunday's general election by a wide margin and will be able to form a majority coalition government with the Polish Peasants' Party (PSL), according to the latest batch of opinion polls being published just hours before the official end of campaigning at midnight.

No more Ducks - hopefully.....

Mike it all depends on what newspaper you read..
PIS will be victorious.

Re: PO will emerge victorious

Can't see a PO victory myself. People lie to pollsters ...

Re: PO will emerge victorious

I don't think PO will get an overall majority, and neither do they. A PO activist told me they expect to increase their majority and at best form a coalition with PSL.

More likely is that they will be the major player in an anti-PiSs coalition. Friends who never normally vote are driving miles just to get rid of the President's identical twin.

PiSs do have a certain appeal to Poland B & to the backseat drivers in Illinois but so many ordinary non-political people here are scandalised by their behaviour & are gasping for change.

MikeC - Let's hope so...

Re: PO will emerge victorious

It would be wonderful, wouldn't it, but the sheer numbers of smalltown folks living in Poland B & voting on their way back from church might prove too much.

Re: PO will emerge victorious

I'd love to think PO will win, but the way the Platforma posters have been defaced in Warsaw I still think there's quite a few who really hate the idea of Tusk getting power.

Re: PO will emerge victorious

I was walking my dog a couple of night-s ago and came across a sixty-something conservatively dressed couple spraying a star of David on a PO poster. They'd even brought their Yorkie dog.
