All polls for Austria - most recent elections held in October 2017

Poll of Polls pre­sents an overview of polling re­sults for the Aus­trian gen­eral elec­tion, which was planned to be held in 2018. The gov­ern­ment formed by the two cen­ter par­ties, the So­cial De­moc­rats, and the Aus­trian Peo­ple Party has been trail­ing the far-right Free­dom Party in polls since 2015. The So­cial De­moc­rats un­der the new lead­er­ship of fed­eral chan­cel­lor Chris­t­ian Kern gained some ground in 2016. Af­ter the vice-chan­cel­lor re­signed in May 2017, the con­ser­v­a­tive shoot­ing-star Se­bas­t­ian Kurz de­manded to hold an early elec­tion. Af­ter he took over the ÖVP the party surged in the polls to first place. Also, the Greens changed their lead­er­ship, while the Team Stronach dropped out of the race.

The most re­cent elec­tion in Aus­tria took place on the 15th of Oc­to­ber 2017. There are al­ways 183 seats up for elec­tion in the Aus­trian Na­tion­al­rat.

About

pollofpolls.eu is a private initiative by three data nerds, who want to offer aggregated polling data for upcoming elections in Europe. Slick design, up to date and comprehensive for anyone looking for the most recent polling numbers and their aggregation. We are not fivethirtyeight yet, but everyone must start at the bottom. We are based in Vienna, Austria, in the middle of the EU with its many difficulties and political disputes going on, and by tracking the political polls we try to give you one option to keep pace with the public mood. We are very aware that polls are far from showing the actual full picture, and we, therefore, see them rather as a very good compass, especially when aggregated. Last but not least, we invest our free time and apologize for possibly occurring bugs or errors.

Contact: Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates and more. We also look forward to your feedback, questions or funny gifs, which you can send us via Email contact@pollofpolls.eu.

Disclosure: Poll of polls - pollofpolls.eu is a polling data project based in Vienna, Austria.
