Presidential election in Poland: Slight advantage for Duda

The presidential election in Poland of the two candidates in the runoff election on may 12. July move has been stylized to a fate choice. The choice of fighters from President Andrzej Duda have shown the Opposition as a collection of people who wanted to destroy all the values and traditions on which Poland was established, while from the point of view of the opposition candidate, Rafal Trzaskowski, to prevent the final slide of Poland into a nationalist-authoritarian rule.

The output of this competition is the first round of the presidential election open. Duda, however, is slightly in advantage. He has reached 43.6 per cent, a good result and advertises, especially in those 6.7 percent of the voters who voted for the nationalists, Krzysztof Bosak. Mathematically, you would reach out to him for the victory.

Complicated the situation for Trzaskowski is. For him, it is a success, that he came in the first round to a good 30 percent of the vote. But for a victory he now needs the votes of voters who have voted in the first round for very different candidates. He must try to win in the runoff election, both supporters of the homophobic nationalists Bosak as well as those of the left LGTB activist Robert Biedron for themselves.

in Addition, Trzaskowski needs to have a clear choice to the recommendation of the liberal Catholic journalist Szymon Holownia, has received as a political novice without a party apparatus for almost 14 percent of the vote. After the hard attacks in the election campaign, it will not fall Trzaskowskis people but easy to move Holownia to do so.

Hopeless Trzaskowski location is not yet. The national conservative ruling party"law and justice" (PiS), whose candidate for President Duda has with their divisive, often hateful rhetoric, many of the opponents made under the Right, the content actually.

it is Crucial, therefore, in two weeks, which of the two candidates can better mobilize. The turnout was on Sunday, with 64.4 percent was exceptionally high. For the runoff is expected to be an increase. Trzaskowski manages to make the runoff a Referendum against the PiS and to bring all their opponents at the ballot box? Duda still has reserves over and above the core electorate of the PiS also?
