The conservative Homeland Union–Lithuanian Christian Democrats lags in second place with 14 percent support, followed by the Lithuanian Social Democratic Party (LSDP) with 9 percent and the Liberal Movement with 7 percent.

Some 28 percent of those polled said they did not know which party they would vote for.

Other parties would not clear the 5 percent hurdle required to enter the Seimas.

Three percent of respondents would support both the Order and Justice party and the Labour Party. Two percent would vote for the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania–Christian Families Alliance (EAPL-CFA) and 1 percent for the Lithuanian Freedom Union.

RAIT polled 1,020 people aged between 15 and 75 years on Feb. 9-26. The representative survey was commissioned by BNS.
