Austria

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.
