Final Word from Monday, May 17, 2010

According to a recent poll conducted in Czech and English by Donath-Burson-Marsteller, Final Word readers think that ČSSD has the most-targeted election campaign but that what Jiří Paroubek's party is promising isn't what the country needs. TOP 09, with its emphasis on fiscal responsibility, scores best in terms of what the country needs but isn't especially effective in getting the message across, readers say. Although Final Word readers are predominantly right-oriented and think that Petr Nečas of ODS would make the best PM, they aren't impressed with ODS's campaign. Only 6.6% of respondents think it is the most effective. A plurality of respondents expect the next government to be formed by ODS and one or more small parties, but readers give ČSSD a greater overall chance than ODS of being in the next government. Still, fewer than 2% of respondents want Paroubek to be the PM.[Czech Republic prime minister survey research analysis]
