article imagePoll: Support for Golden Dawn surges to 13.5 percent

By Katerina Nikolas     Nov 26, 2012 in World
Support for Greece's traditional political parties is falling while support for the extreme-left and the far-right is rising. The coalition of the radical left, SYRIZA, now tops the polls with ultra-nationalist party Golden Dawn polling third.
Since Greece's June election support for each of the three coalition partners has fallen, with previously popular PASOK on just 6.5 percent. SYRIZA holds firm with 26 percent of the vote compared to 26.9 in June. A graph of the poll is published on Xryshaygh with the figures confirmed by Reuters.
The party which has garnered the highest percentage of increased support is Golden Dawn (Chrysi Avgi) which now polls 13.5 percent compared to 7 percent in June. Another poll puts Golden Dawn on 12 percent and SYRIZA on 23.5 percent. According to Keep Talking Greece 10.5 percent of those polled said they would not vote, whilst a further 8.5 percent are undecided.
The current coalition government is tenuously holding onto power. Several MPs were dropped from the government during the recent vote on the latest austerity measures, which they failed to support.
