Shock Result Sets Up Tight Polish Presidential Runoff Ballot

Updated on

Poland is headed to a tight runoff election, with Bronislaw Komorowski facing an uphill battle to save his presidency after a shock defeat in the first round.

Komorowski’s support has melted from more than 60 percent three months ago to 33.1 percent in Sunday’s vote, slipping behind opposition candidate Andrzej Duda, who got 34.5 percent, according to the latest Ipsos exit poll. They will face each other in a May 24 runoff.
