Socio-political moods of the population of Ukraine: January 2021

On January 22, 2021, the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) conducted an all-Ukrainian public opinion poll. Computer-assisted telephone interviews (CATI) were used to interview 1,005 respondents living in all regions of Ukraine (except the Autonomous Republic of Crimea) based on a random sample of mobile phone numbers. The sample is representative for the adult population (18 years and older) of Ukraine. The sample does not include territories that are temporarily not controlled by the authorities of Ukraine - the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, certain districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

In Luhansk and Donetsk regions, the survey was conducted only in the territory controlled by the Ukrainian authorities.

The statistical error of the sample (with a probability of 0.95 and without taking into account the design effect) does not exceed: 3.1% - for indicators close to 50%, 2.7% - for indicators close to 25%, 2.1% - for indicators close to 12%, 1.4% - for indicators close to 5%.

           

 

In what direction things are moving in the country 

To the question "In your opinion, are things going in the right or wrong direction in Ukraine now?" 74.3% of respondents answer that things are moving in the wrong direction. Believe that things are moving in the right direction - 10%. The remaining 15.7% of respondents were undecided or refused to answer the question.  

Electoral moods of the population regarding the election of the President of Ukraine: the first round

Electoral moods of the population regarding the election of the President of Ukraine: the second round

Respondents were modeled on two pairs of the second round: V. Zelenskyi and P. Poroshenko and P. Poroshenko and Yu. Boiko.

In the pair of V. Zelenskyi and P. Poroshenko, 30.6% of all respondents would support V. Zelenskyi, and 24.9% of respondents would vote for P. Poroshenko. In terms of those who decided on the choice, 55.2% would support V. Zelenskyi, and 44.8% - Poroshenko. The difference between the candidates exceeds the error, so in such a pair as of the end of January V. Zelenskyi is gaining more.

In the pair of Yu. Boiko and P. Poroshenko, 33.9% of all respondents would vote for Yu. Boiko, and 30.1% - for P. Poroshenko. Among those who decided on the choice, 53% would vote for Yu. Boiko, 47% - for P. Poroshenko. However, the difference between the candidates is within the error, so formally, according to the results of the survey, they have approximately the same support.

 

Electoral moods of the population regarding the elections to the Verkhovna Rada
