More than half of the citizens think that the current government of SDSM led by Prime Minister Zoran Zaev shows extremely poor results in general, and even greater percentage of those who believe that the country is moving in the wrong direction and do not expect improvement.
These results come from a survey of public opinion in the country published on Sunday by the Institute for Strategies, Research and Analysis SIA VISTA, done for its own needs.
The SIA VISTA Institute for Strategies, Research and Analysis conducted public opinion poll for its own purposes. The poll was conducted by phone between 21.12.2020 and 25.12.2020 and involved 1,523 respondents, taking demographic structure and ethnicity into account. The analysis covers all electoral districts. The margin of error is 1.5% give or take.
A high 50.2 percent of the respondents evaluated the work of the Government of Prime Minister ZoranZaev with a grade 1 out of 5 and with the lowest passing grade of 2 it was evaluated by 21.7 percent of the respondents. Overall, many 2 grades are the percentages for the grades that range in the description with 3, 4 and 5 on the five-point scale. That is, the government is rated with a 3 by 10.9, with a 4 out of 5 by 3.3 and with a 5 by 9.1 percent of the participants in the poll. 4.8 percent of the respondents did not give their grade.
Regarding the handling of the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, most of the respondents in this poll consider that it is a marketing move for personal promotion of members of the government and bribery of the voters for the early parliamentary elections from July 15 and the early mayoral elections in Shtip and Plasnica.
A total of 26 percent believe that the country is on the right path. That is, 10.7 percent answered the same question with “Yes, although it could be better” and 15.3 percent said “Yes better than I expected”. 7% of the respondents refused to answer this question.
