Incumbent President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has twice as many supporters as his predecessor, Petro Poroshenko, that's per a sociological survey conducted jointly by Socis Center and Razumkov Center.
Respondents were asked: "If the presidential election were held in Ukraine next Sunday, who would you vote for?" Razumkov Center reports.
The poll's results showed 25.6% would back Zelensky, while 13.7% would support Poroshenko.
Pro-Russian Opposition Platform-For Life's Yuriy Boyko would gain 12% of the vote, former PM and long-time opposition figure Yulia Tymoshenko would come fourth with 8.8%, and ex-security chief Ihor Smeshko would get 7.0%.
All other candidates stood below 3%.
Controversial blogger Anatolii Sharij and former Radical Party leader Oleh Liashko would get 2.9% each, while National Corpse chief Andriy Biletsky would gain 1%.
Some 10% of those surveyed said they would vote for another candidate, someone who was not listed in the survey.
The poll showed that if the elections went into a second leg with Zelensky and Poroshenko competing as it was last time, 44.3% of the respondents would support the incumbent head of state, while 20.4 would vote for Poroshenko.
At the same time, 25% of those polled said they would not go to polls, and another 10.3% refused to answer or had no answer to questions put forward.
Among those who had made up their choice and would definitely vote in the second round, 68.4% would vote for Zelensky, and 31.6% – for Poroshenko.
Sociologists interviewed 4,000 respondents over the age of 18 door-to-door.
The results represent Ukraine's population with the exception of the temporarily occupied Crimea and parts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
