President-elect Duda gets 48 percent thumbs up

Just under half of Poles (48 percent) believe that president-elect Andrzej Duda will be a better president than outgoing Bronisław Komorowski.

Just over a fifth (22 percent) said Duda’s presidency would be worse than his predecessor, according to a CBOS opinion poll.

Seventeen percent of respondents said Duda – whose inauguration takes place on Thursday - would be a “decidedly better” president, with 31 percent saying he would be “better” and 30 precent not expressing an opinion.

Specialist opinion on why Komorowski unexpecetdly lost the May presidential election after holding a large lead for so long was mixed. One political scientist, dr Hubert Horbaczewski from the University of Łódź, for example, told the Polish news agency (PAP) that Komorowski had been a “colourless figure, and also one of the more partisan presidents to date.”
