Poll: 55 percent express trust in president

According to a new poll by the CVVM agency, 55 percent of Czechs have expressed trust in the current head-of-state – a rise of one percent from June. Local mayor and municipal leaders, the poll suggested, enjoy the highest level of trust at 64. By contrast, trust is lowest in the lower house of Parliament, the Chamber of Deputies, which enjoys just 35 percent, a slight one percent rise since the previous survey. Those who expressed trust in the president most often included seniors or pensioners as well as voters on the left of the political spectrum, the polling agency said.
