The survey by pollster CBOS found the opposition Civic Platform (PO) party, which led the previous government, is supported by 16 percent, and the left-wing Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) is third on 6 percent. This last party is now outside parliament.
The Kukiz'15 grouping is fourth on 5 percent, according to the survey.
Other parties would not exceed the 5 percent threshold needed to make it into the Polish parliament, according to the poll.
The figures are for voters who say they would take part in the next parliamentary elections.
Backing for PiS increased by 2 percentage points compared with a March CBOS poll, while support for the PO also rose by 2 points.
The SLD saw its support inch up by 1 percentage point, while Kukiz'15 slid by 1 point.
The poll was conducted on April 5-12 on a representative sample of 1,140 adults.
