Socio-political moods of the population of Ukraine: the results of a survey conducted on December 9-17, 2021 by the method of personal (face-to-face) interviews

During December 9-17, 2021, the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology (KIIS) conducted an all-Ukrainian public opinion poll. By the method of personal (“face-to-face”) interview using a tablet (CAPI, computer-assisted personal interviews) were interviewed 2025 respondents living in 109 settlements of all regions of Ukraine (except the AR of Crimea) by a 3-level stochastic sample with quota selection at the last stage, which is representative of the population of Ukraine aged 18 and over.

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 a design effect of 1.5) does not exceed: 3.3% for indicators close to 50%, 2.9% - for indicators close to 25%, 2.2% - for indicators close to 12%, 1.5% - for indicators close to 5%.

 

The first wave of the survey was conducted during June 22-29, 2021 according to the same methodology, the second wave - during July 24-August 1, and the third wave - during October 25-29. Where relevant, the dynamics of indicators during June-December 2021 are given.

           

Main results of the survey:

 

  • If the first round of the election of the President of Ukraine took place in mid-December, V. Zelenskyi would get the most votes - 27.6% among those who decided on the choice. In second place - P. Poroshenko (16%). Yu. Boiko (9.4%) and Yu. Tymoshenko share the third place with almost equal support (9%);
  • In the second round of the presidential election, V. Zelenskyi defeats P. Poroshenko, Yu. Boiko and D. Razumkov. In a pair of V. Zelenskyi-Yu. Tymoshenko's ratio is 51.6% to 48.4%, but the difference is within the statistical error;
  • If parliamentary elections were held in mid-December, 7 parties would run for parliament. The parties "Sluha Narodu" (17.6% among those who decided on the choice), "YeS" (16.5%), "Batkivshchyna" (13.7%), "OPZZh" (13.6%) would receive the greatest support (difference of all four parties within the statistical error). "Rozumna Polityka" (6.5%) and "Syla i Chest" (5.5%) also have more than 5%. "Hroisman's Ukrainian Strategy" (4.6%) and "Nashi" (4.4%) have slightly less than the entry barrier. Compared to October, the support of the top parties has changed within the margin of error;
  • 65.3% of Ukrainians believe that affairs in the country are moving in the wrong direction. 18.3% say about the right direction (in October it was 71.1% and 15%);
  • 26.4% of respondents approve of President Zelenskyi's activity, 58.6% do not approve (28.2% and 56.9% in October);
  • 44.3% of respondents support early presidential elections, 46.5% - early parliamentary elections;
  • Among the various options for accelerating Ukraine's development, most respondents chose the return of Ukraine's national wealth (48.5%) and the bringing to power of people with experience in public administration (40.8%);
  • The majority of respondents (66.3%) agree with the interpretation of the current situation in Ukraine as a crisis with degradation and chaos, including 50.9% believe that the prime minister needs to be changed to get out of this situation. Among respondents who consider the situation to be in crisis and in need of a replacement of the prime minister, 20.7% believe that Yu. Tymoshenko is the best head of government to get Ukraine out of the crisis. Next are V. Hroisman (16.4%) and M. Azarov (14.8%);
  • The main sources of information for the population are national television (57.7% include in the top-3 most important sources) and websites (55.4%). 39.8% of respondents talk about social networks.

In addition to the first round, respondents were simulated 5 situations of a possible second round of presidential elections: V. Zelenskyi against P. Poroshenko, Yu. Tymoshenko, Yu. Boiko and D. Razumkov, as well as the couple P. Poroshenko-Yu. Tymoshenko. V. Zelenskyi wins in the second round P. Poroshenko (55.7% against 44.3% among those who decided on the choice), Yu. Boiko (60.2% against 39.8%) and D. Razumkov (53.2% against 46.8%). At the same time in the pair V. Zelenskyi-Yu. Tymoshenko's ratio is 51.6% to 48.4%, but the difference is within the margin of error, i.e. formally we can not say which of the candidates has the highest support. In the pair of P. Poroshenko-Yu. Tymoshenko 45.2% would support P. Poroshenko, 54.8% - Yu. Tymoshenko.

Rating of parties in the elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine

 

Table 3 shows the rating of parties if the elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine took place at the end of October, and specified parties participated in them. In addition, current ratings are compared with ratings as of June 22-29, 2021, July 24-August 1, and October 25-29. Situations where the difference in party support between the two polls is statistically significant (i.e. not due to error) are marked * and highlighted in bold.

If the elections took place in mid-December, seven political forces would pass to the Verkhovna Rada (overcome the 5% barrier): "Sluha Narodu", "OPZZh", "Batkivshchyna", "YeS", "Rozumna Polityka" and "Syla i Chest". Also close to 5% entry barrier are parties "Hroisman’s Ukrainian Strategy" and "Nashi".

The biggest support was received by four parties rating of which differs within the error: "Sluha Narodu" (11.2% among all respondents and 17.6% among those who decided on the choice), "YeS" (respectively, 10.5% and 16.5%), "Batkivshchyna" (8.7% and 13.7%), "OPZZh" (8.7% and 13.6%). Formally, the difference in support for these political forces is within the statistical error, so they "share" with about the same support first place.

Next are the parties "Rozumna Polityka" (4.1% and 6.5%) and "Syla i Chest" (3.5% and 5.5%). Formally, they are gaining less than entry barrier, but the parties "Hroisman's Ukrainian Strategy" (2.9% and 4.6%) and "Nashi" (2.8% and 4.4) are close to passing.

Compared to October, the rating of the top-parties has not changed significantly, ie all the recorded fluctuations are within the statistical error, although there is a tendency to reduce in support for "OPZZh". At the same time, support for the "Rozumna Polityka"and "Nashi" parties increased statistically significantly.

Comment by Anton Hrushetskyi: Analyzing the results obtained, in particular, the ratings of parties in the elections to the Verkhovna Rada, it should be borne in mind that, first, the survey was conducted by the method of personal (“face-to-face”) interviews. We have repeatedly drawn the attention of the expert community to the fact that the research method affects the results. Respondents interviewed by the method of personal interviews are less affluent, have a slightly lower level of education and are slightly less active than respondents interviewed by the method of telephone interviews. These differences were the subject of a report by KIIS Director General Professor V. Paniotto at the 4th Congress of the Sociological Association of Ukraine on October 28-29. In particular, it has been shown that in recent telephone surveys there are on average 7-8% more respondents with higher education and at the same time 16% fewer respondents with low or very low incomes. As a result, it may affect the rating of individual political forces. However, due to the lack of a census, there is no reliable data on the share of people with higher education, etc., which would allow us to understand which of the methods is more accurate. Some experiments in 2019 showed that surveys by the method of personal interviews were more accurate, but now, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors, the situation could change.

Secondly, the situation with the electoral dominance of four political forces: "Sluha Narodu", "OPZZh", "Batkivshchyna" and "YeS" has continued in recent times. Moreover, the parties are "tight", and the gap between them is quite small, mostly within the statistical error. For example, in this survey, the difference for all top 4 parties is within error. In fact, there are four political players with fairly close support, whose order of opinion according to survey data may vary depending on methodological factors (e.g., method of the survey) and current contextual conditions (e.g., a just-launched high-profile investigation that may initially have an impact but then may return to previous state).

Third, statistical error must be taken into account to analyze the dynamics. The ratings of all top parties according to the results of the current survey do not actually differ from the ratings of parties as of October 2021, and the fluctuations that can be seen - remain within the statistical error.

[1] As long as parties / candidates have not been registered, any list has a right to exist. Meanwhile, the rating of a party / candidate depends on how many subjects from the same electoral field are on the list - the more of them, the lower the rating of each party and each candidate. In addition, in the event of a parliamentary election, who is considered the party leader plays a significant role. Therefore, now, before the registration of the lists of parties / candidates, all the obtained data on the ratings are conditional and depend on the list offered to the respondents. At the same time, the more different the lists, the less reasonable it is to compare the results obtained with different lists.
