Yanukovych, Tymoshenko hold lead in election race

If the presidential elections were held in the end of September, Viktor Yanukovych and Yulia Tymoshenko would have had the highest support of the voters, according to the survey conducted by the Ukrainian Democratic Circle at the request of the Institute of Politics.

A total of 28.9% of voters ready to back Yanukovych and 20.8% support Tymoshenko. Other politicians have a substantially lower backing of the population. In the runoff election, Yanukovych would get 41% and Tymoshenko 35.1%.

    Seems to me there was a similar margin in the last election and Yulia pulled it out. While she is no winner, she’s much better for Ukraine than Yanu.

    So who’s the bright boy who didn’t complete first grade arithmetic?

    The other 24% probably wrote “Nyet to both”

    Or will not vote.

    The survey is not complete and could be a percentage of all, not just those that will vote.

    Assuming a 80% participation rate the 41%/35% would becomes

    51.25% Yanuchovich and 43.75% Yulia Tymoshenko

    Leaving a 5% Against all vote. Which sounds about right
