Survey participants were asked to "evaluate the performance of Prime Minister Morawiecki's government".

38% of respondents had a "definitely bad" and 23% a "rather bad" opinion on how the Polish government is doing its job.

34% of respondents said the opposite. Of that group, 14% "strongly" approved of the PM’s performance, while 20% thought Morawiecki is doing "rather well".

5% of surveyed Poles have no opinion on the matter.

The poll was conducted by Kantar on August 17-18, 2022 on a nationwide, representative sample of 1003 adults.

Increasingly negative view of the government

Back in July, when CBOS surveyed public sentiment, the mood was significantly different.

At the time, only 39% of respondents declared themselves as opponents of the current government, while 32 % said the opposite. 25% expressed indifference. 37% were satisfied with Mateusz Morawiecki as head of the government, and 49% disapproved of him. It was a minimal improvement compared to the previous survey.
