The ruling Democratic Party (SDS) increased its lead to just shy of eight points in the latest poll commissioned by the commercial broadcaster POP TV.

The SDS polled at 16.9%, down 0.3 percentage points from December, as the opposition SocDems lost 1.2 points to 7.9 to 9% in second, followed by the Marjan Šarec List (LMŠ), which gained 1.5 points to 8.8%. The voter approval rating for the government improved slightly. Almost one out of four respondents (23%) were undecided.
