  • According to the results of the anonymous survey of the respondents (through the method of "secret box"), if parliamentary elections were had been held in mid-November, the representatives of seven political parties would have passed. The All-Ukrainian Union "Batkivshchyna" would have received more support than any other party (20% of those who intends to vote and decided with the choice). Further by the level of support go "Block of Petro Poroshenko" (13.3%), the Radical Party of Oleh Liashko (9.8%), "Opozytsiinyi blok" (9%), the party "Za zhyttia" (8.2%), " Samopomich" (6.0%) and "Hromadianska pozytsia"(5.8%). The party "Svoboda" is on the verge of passing (4.9%).

  • The results of the anonymous survey of the respondents (through the method of "secret box"), if presidential elections in Ukraine had been held in mid-November 2016, in the first round Yulia Tymoshenko would have received the most votes (24% of those who intend to vote and decided with the choice). In the second place is Petro Poroshenko (17.9%).

  • In the case of the second round of Yulia Tymoshenko and Petro Poroshenko, the former would receive more votes.

 

In a period of November 4 - 13, 2016 Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) has conducted its own public opinion poll in Ukraine. Data were collected from 2039 respondents living in 110 settlements in all regions of Ukraine (except for AR of Crimea) through the personal interviews. The sample is stochastic, 4-staged with quota selection on the last stage, the sample is representative of the population of Ukraine aged 18 and above.

In Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts (regions) survey was conducted only in the territories controlled by Ukraine.

The statistical sample error (with the probability of 0.95 and with the design–effect of 1.5) does not exceed 3.3% for indicators close to 50%, 2.8% – for indicators close to 25%, 2.0% – for indicators close to 10%, 1.4% – for indicators close to 5%.

           

Commentary of KIIS experts:

“The work of the sociologists in the past two years has deteriorated because of the problems with the possibilities of surveying in Donbas. There is no reliable statistics about how many people live in controlled and uncontrolled parts of Luhansk and Donetsk regions. Sociologists have to decide on the distribution of the sample under various hypotheses - with the regard to migration, without migration, given the uncontrolled territory, excluding it etc. That is why the results of different polling companies may vary by several percents (especially it concerns ratings). In this survey sample was distributed only in the controlled part of the Donbass, in the same proportion, that, according to the CEC, Donbass voters constituted in the last parliamentary elections (October 2014)”.

Commentary of the CEO of KIIS, Volodymyr Paniotto

The standards of rankings representations in publications described in the article on our website.

The list of the parties itself is a certain hypothesis (in this case the hypothesis of the client), until the election campaign begin, the registration closed and a sortation of the parties positions on the ballot ended. This survey offered a list of 27 political parties. Although now Vitali Klychko and Volodymyr Hroisman associated with the team of the president, given the attempts of these politicians to demonstrate independence and, maybe, not a complete satisfaction of their position in the pro-presidential force, in case of an election they can make their own attempt to run for parliament. Especially considering that the mayor of Kyiv has the experience in “UDAR”, and the Premiere minister in the parties “Sovist Ukrainy” and “Vinnytska ievropeiska strategia”. The latter, by the way, received more support in the last local elections than the party “Block Petra Poroshenka”. That is why it was worthy to assess how big is the potential of such possible participants of the election. On the other hand, the results showed that if we add the results of these two parties to the rating of “BPP”, the overall result qualitatively will remain approximately the same. Of course, different lists of parties can give different results.
