As explained by “Rain”, of all respondents, 63 % would vote for the incumbent head of state, and 6% for Vladimir Zhirinovsky, 3 % – for Gennady Zyuganov, 2% for Alexei Navalny. 9% of respondents said that they would not come to the polls, and 5% would come, but wouldn’t know who to vote for. Thus, when considering only those respondents who will go to the polls, Putin’s electoral rating is 82 %. It is the best result in history, says Levada. A year before the last election in which he participated, the figure was 68% and on the eve of the 2008 elections – 43 %.
We will remind that presidential elections of Russia will be held in March 2018. About his intention to run, said Alexei Navalny, the leaders of the LDPR and Yabloko Vladimir Zhirinovsky and Grigory Yavlinsky.
