For Alexander Schallenberg (ÖVP), 18 percent would decide in a direct election, for Pamela Rendi-Wagner (SPÖ) 15 percent. Herbert Kickl (FPÖ) would get 12 percent approval, Werner Kogler (GREEN) and Beate Meinl-Reisinger (NEOS) follow with 6 percent each, with a respectful distance.
In the favor of the voters, the SPÖ (25 percent), like several times before, is just ahead of the ÖVP (24 percent). If there were elections on Sunday, the FPÖ would get 20 percent, the Greens and NEOS would lose easily and would come to 13 percent respectively 10 percent.
