Poll: Game over with less than 18 days remaining

The latest opinion poll to be published shows no change in the expected outcome of the election.

With less than 18 days remaining before thefirst round election there is little to no chance or expectation thatthe outcome of the election will change. 

According to a survey carried out by the SOCIS Center for Social and Marketing Research Viktor Yanukovych has 31% support. Yulia Tymoshenko remains in second place with 16.7%

The next highest candidate Sergiy Tigipko is 9 percentage points behind Tymoshenko who is on 7.9% followed by  Front for Change leader Arseniy Yatseniuk on  5.0% ,

Incumbent President Viktor Yuschenko is in an unwinnable position with only 4.0% ,  one percentage point ahead of communist party leader  Petro Symonenko who has 3.1%  support and Parliamentary Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn even less on 2.7% .

FOM Ukraine has reported that 88% of Ukrainians disapprove of President Viktor Yuschenko’s performance.

Under Ukraine’s two round first-past-the-post voting system only the two highest polling candidates can progress to the second round of voting, a gap of 9% is virtually impossible to breach.
