ImageUkrainian President Viktor Yanukovych would lose to any of the opposition candidates in the second round if presidential elections were held in the near future, sociologists have said.

According to a survey conducted by the Socis Center and Kyiv International Institute of Sociology, if Yanukovych and UDAR Party leader Vitali Klitschko won through to the second round, the incumbent president would gain 36.1% of the vote and his opponent 63.9%.

If independent MP Petro Poroshenko advanced to the second round, he would collect 62.3% and Yanukovych 37.7%.

If Svoboda leader Oleh Tiahnybok progressed to the second round, he would have 54.4% and Yanukovych 45.6%, and if Batkivschyna faction leader Arseniy Yatseniuk reached the second round, he would garner 58.4% and Yanukovych 41.6%.

If former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko won through the second round, she would collect 57.4% of the vote and Yanukovych 42.6%.

In general, among those who would participate in the elections, 29.5% would vote for Yanukovych in the first round, 28.7% for Klitschko, 18.6% for Poroshenko, 9.2% for Yatseniuk, 4.7% for Communist Party leader Petro Symonenko, 3.8% for Tiahnybok, 0.7% for Ukrainian Choice leader Viktor Medvedchuk, and 4.9% for another candidate.

The survey was conducted from January 24 to February 1, through a standard face-to-face interview, in all regions in Ukraine. A total of 2,400 respondents were questioned. The poll’s margin of error is 2%.
