Although respondents still see Skvernelis as the best-suitable figure for the PM position, support to the prime minister was 31 percent in May, down from 36.9 percent in April and 40.6 percent in March.

The nation's support to the Skvernelis-led government is also down, with 27 percent of those polled viewing the Cabinet's performance positively in May, which is a sharp decline from 38.7 percent a month ago.

The ruling Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union remains the most popular party, and the drop of its ratings remained within the margin of error. If Lithuania held parliamentary elections tomorrow, the party would secure 19 percent of the vote, down from 19.9 percent in April. The second most popular party was the conservative Homeland Union – Lithuanian Christian Democrats with 13.1 percent (14.6 pct in April), followed by the Social Democrats with 11.6 percent (11.2 pct in April) and the Liberal Movement with 6.5 percent (5.5 pct in April). Other parties would remain below the five-percent threshold to win mandates in multi-mandate voting.

The poll of 1,007 respondents was conducted for delfi.lt by public opinion and market research company Spinter Tyrimai (Spinter Surveys) on May 19-25. The margin of error is 3.1 percent.
