Electoral rating Sobchak was less than 1%
The vast majority of Russians (90%) are not willing to vote for the TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak in the election of the President, but 9% admit such a possibility, found “Levada-center”.
Among the latter there are supporters of President Vladimir Putin, and those who are not undecided, and 13% of those who were not going to the polls. However, the electoral rating Sobchak is still less than 1%. Opposition leader Alexei Navalny came in third place (1.8 percent), ahead of Communist party leader Gennady Zyuganov (1.7 percent) and second only to the leader of LDPR Vladimir Zhirinovsky (3%) and Putin (53% of all respondents).
The campaign has just begun, it is difficult to make predictions, but the nomination Sobchak raised the negative background against her, says the General Director of “Levada-center” Lev Gudkov: “the Maximum it can count on the support, which was used by Prokhorov” (businessman Mikhail Prokhorov in the 2012 election gained 8% of votes. — “Vedomosti”). Press conference Sobchak attracted the attention of the dissatisfied power and with them it can work, says the sociologist.
“It can attract the protest vote, if it is to focus on the problems that the authorities prefer to gloss over. The closer to the position of the Bulk of it will be, the more will come to his electorate. Also for it can vote those who are now refusing to go to the polls. But it’s not so much a vote for Sobchak as a protest vote”.
The chance to make a bright campaign is, you can tell by the rating of recognition and thousands of publications after the nomination, said political analyst Vitaliy Shklyarov from the headquarters Sobchak: “First, the emphasis will be on those who support it. Separately will work to attract young people and urban entrepreneurs. Even the rating, you can replay the positive.”
The head of the Federal headquarters of Bulk Leonid Volkov said that he was ready to discuss the prospects of candidates who are already in a campaign, or those who do not need to collect signatures: “Before inclusion in the surveys Sobchak has the same meaning as any other citizen, has the right to run. In principle, the same voters — not the flu, they airborne not transmitted”.
