Christian democrats are gaining support in Slovenia

The three Slovenian parties affiliated with the European People's Party have gained support in the last month. A similar growth was registered also by the parties affiliated with ALDE (+3.4).

In Slovenia five polls were recorded between February 1 and March 31, 2019. Parties belonging to EPP, ALDE, and GUE/NGL have gained support in the polls, while the social democrats have lost support.

As there are few or no polls on the EU Parliament elections in Slovenia we analyzed polling data for the national parliament. The most recent poll is from March 24, 2019.
