Fifty-two percent of those surveyed by pollster Kantar Millward Brown in July said they would vote for Duda, while 44 percent said they would support Tusk, the head of the European Council, a key European Union leadership position.
Four percent of respondents were undecided, Kantar Millward Brown said.
Support for Duda rose by 7 percentage points, while backing for Tusk dropped by 6 points compared with a similar poll in April, with the number of those undecided inching down by 1 point, according to the survey.
The poll was commissioned by private broadcaster TVN for its Fakty news programme and its TVN24 around-the-clock news channel.
Kantar Millward Brown conducted the survey on 11-12 July on a sample of 1,008 respondents. (str/pk)
