Fifty-one percent of Poles are critical of the conservative government of Prime Minister Beata Szydło, while 38 percent assess its performance favourably, according to a survey by Kantar Public.

The study found that 11 percent of respondents had no opinion on the matter.
Szydło herself also has more critics than supporters, 47 and 40 percent respectively.
The poll also asked respondents about their view of President Andrzej Duda. In comparison to last month’s survey, his popularity has fallen, with the disapproval rate up by one percentage point to 45 percent and the approval rate down two percentage points to 44 percent.
The survey was carried out between 3 and 8 of March -- before former Polish PM Donald Tusk was re-elected as head of the European Council -- on a representative group of 1,059 people over 15 years of age, using computer-assisted direct interviews. (mk/pk)
