If the presidential election took place now, the majority of citizens (74%) would support the candidacy of Vladimir Putin. This is the maximum in last four years, as sociologists of Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTsIOM) say. 

More and more promises which were made by Putin during his election campaign in 2012 become a reality. Since the beginning of 2013, the number of respondents, who believe that the President has already fulfilled most of them, has doubled. The representatives of youth and supporters of opposition parties speak more about the fulfillment of all promises.

According to sociologists, even 70% of those who don’t believe that the President has not implemented many campaign promises yet, would vote for Putin.

The support has increased in all major socio-demographic groups. For example, 78% of young people are ready to vote for Putin, and 80% of rich citizens, as well as 81% of residents of medium-sized cities. The researchers have also revealed the growing support among supporters of the opposition parliamentary parties.

The survey was conducted January 23-24, among 1.6 thousand people in 130 boroughs in 46 regions of the country. The statistical error does not exceed 3.5%.
