Respondents were presented with a list of 20 Polish political figures and asked “which of these politicians would you go for a beer with.”
Kukiz, whose Kukiz '15 grouping is currently the third largest faction in Poland's lower house of parliament, topped the Millward Brown ranking with 55 percent.
In second place was President of Poland Andrzej Duda with 43 percent. Duda was followed by Aleksander Kwaśniewski (41 percent), who served as Poland's president from 1995 to 2005.
Fourth place was taken by Mayor of Słupsk Robert Biedron, who was Poland's first openly gay MP, although he stood down in December 2014 after winning the mayoral race.
Opposition party leader Ryszard Petru of the Nowoczesna party came fifth equal with former prime minister Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council (33 percent).
Prime Minister Beata Szydło of the Law and Justice party was tenth overall with 23 percent.
