Poll shows: president Kaczynski's position remains instable

The poll by CBOS showed that 49 percent of respondents have a negative view of the conservative leader and that only 32 percent support him.

The polling institute attributed the poor showing to Kaczynski's close association with his party, Law and Justice, which formed a coalition in early May with two abrasive minor rivals.

"The president is now seen as a president of one party, not of the people, and that makes people unwilling to trust him," said Michal Wencel, a sociologist at CBOS involved in the survey.

CBOS polls put support for Kaczynski at 42 percent in March, but it dropped to 31 percent in April as Law and Justice lined up with the populist Self-Defense party and the right-wing League of Polish Families. Law and Justice is led by Kaczynski's identical twin Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

Kaczynski took office in late December after winning 54 percent of the vote in the October presidential race.

CBOS questioned 991 adults on May 12-15 for the latest survey and gave a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
