Pulse poll shows conservatives have 13 point lead over SYRIZA


Greece’s main opposition New Democracy party has widened its lead over ruling SYRIZA, according to a poll by Pulse for news website Action24.

The survey indicates that support for the conservatives stands at 30 percent against 17 percent for the leftists.

This is a lead of 13 percent for New Democracy, which was ahead by 12 percent in the last opinion poll carried out by Pulse.

They are followed by Golden Dawn on 7 percent, PASOK on 6.5 percent, and the Greek Communist Party (KKE) on 6 percent.

To Potami, Independent Greeks (ANEL), Popular Unity and Sailing for Freedom are all below the 3 percent threshold required to enter Parliament.

The poll was conducted after Parliament narrowly approved an omnibus reform package needed to unlock more bailout aid.
