The highest level of support for this idea is in the south and east of the country (over 80%). Along with this, at least 60% of respondents back it in other macro-regions. There is a certain difference in the attitude toward holding early elections among supporters of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc's Solidarity Party, most of whom oppose this initiative, according to a survey conducted by the Rating sociological group.

The poll was conducted on May 16-21, 2019, through personal formalized (face-to-face) interviews. The sample population is represented by age (18 and older), gender, type of settlement, and region. Some 2,000 respondents have been interviewed. The margin of error does not exceed 2.2%.
