Komorowski Widens Lead Over Kaczynski to 20% in Polish Presidency Race

Acting Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski would defeat Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the leader of the opposition Law & Justice party, by 50 percent to 30 percent in the first round of elections on June 20, Rzeczpospolita said, citing a May 21 survey by GfK Polonia.

Komorowski’s support rose from 48 percent in a survey published on May 15, while Kaczynski’s remained unchanged, the newspaper said.

The recent poll questioned 1,000 people by telephone, the report said. No margin of error was given.
