Poland's Eurosceptic governing party sees popularity soar

Poland’s Law and Justice party (PiS) is polling nearly double its nearest rival, according to pollster Estymator.

The poll suggests that PiS are backed by 42.8% of Poland’s voters, nearly double the opposition party, Civic Platform (PO), who are currently sitting at 22.2%.

If an election were held today, PiS would win 248 seats, an increase on the 236 they won in 2015, giving them an absolute majority in the Polish Sejm.

The poll also suggests that the Eurosceptic, anti-establishment Kukiz party would win 9.1% of the vote, giving them around 43 MPs.

Polish Prime Minister, Beata Szydło, is also enjoying record support after standing firm against the EU’s bullying tactics which would have forced the country to take in a quota of refugees.

Civic Platform, which is deeply pro-European, has suffered a fall from grace in the minds of the Poles, who see it as a party of elite Europhiles, particularly because of their relationship with president of the European Council, Donald Tusk.

Westmonster has previously reported how leaders such as Macron and Merkel are tanking in the polls. Meanwhile, conservative patriots such as Babis and Orban in Eastern Europe are soaring. It looks like conservatism is here to stay! If only our own so-called conservatives would take notice!
