More than eight in 10 Greeks are disappointed with the current government with roughly the same rate foreseeing more tough austerity measures ahead, according to a new survey carried out by the University of Macedonia for Skai.

The same poll found that 67 percent of respondents who voted for SYRIZA in the September elections are dissatisfied with the party.

Meanwhile another survey carried out by ProRata for I Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper found that the percentage of Greeks who would vote for leftist SYRIZA has dropped to 20 from 35.5 percent in the September elections. That survey also saw the popularity of conservative New Democracy decline to 19 from 28 percent.

Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn was in third place with 6.5 percent, a small drop from 6.95 percent in the elections. The Communist Party saw its popularity inch up to 6 percent from 5.6 percent while socialist PASOK dropped to 4 from 6.27 percent, followed by centrist To Potami (down to 2.5 percent from 3.67), Independent Greeks (2 percent from 3.7) and the Union of Centrists (3 percent from 3.40 percent).

However, 31 percent of respondents answered “don’t know/won’t answer” when asked which party they would vote for if elections were held now.
