Director of the Institute of the newest States Alexey Martynov noted that illustrative look rating measurements Grudinina among supporters of the Communist party.
“Comrade Zyuganov in the role of chief of staff, the whole Communist nomenclature sharpened by the candidate from the party — all the power of the party is aimed at the candidate Grudinina. However, we see that slightly more than half of supporters of the Communist party are ready today to vote for Grudinina. And this is only the beginning of the campaign, as they say, not all revelations have been” — said Martynov.
Director of the Institute of the newest States expressed the view that the nomination of the Communist party is little known outside the Moscow region candidate may indicate a crisis within the party.
“Many do not understand why the second largest and the oldest party of the country with such traditions, which considers itself the successor of the Communist party, failed to put up a decent candidate. Grudinin, of course, a successful entrepreneur, but regional level. At the level of Moscow region it is quite well-known. Outside the Moscow region, his business is not out, except exported money abroad,” — said Martynov.
