According to the survey conducted by public opinion and market research center Vilmorus on 4-13 July, the Social Democratic Party would get 20.6 percent of the vote in elections, if they were held on Sunday, down from 22.5 percent a month ago.

Meanwhile, the Order and Justice party was supported by 11 percent of respondents, indicating a drop from 14.5 percent in June.

Another 9.7 percent of those polled said they would vote for the opposition Homeland Union–Lithuanian Christian Democrats (conservatives) (10.3 percent in June), 7.4 percent for the opposition Liberal Movement (7.5 percent in June).

According to the poll, the remaining political parties would not cross the five-percent election threshold.

The Peasant and Greens Union would be supported by 4.5 percent of respondents, while the ruling Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania and the Green Party would get support of 2.8 percent and 2.9 percent, respectively.

More than a fourth of respondents either did not know which party to support (12.7 percent) or said they would not come to polling stations at all (12.9 percent).
