The number of people willing to vote in possible parliamentary elections has fallen by 36%, according to a representative poll conducted by the Alpha Research agency between November 22 and 30. 

GERB is the leading political force in the poll, with 21.9% support. We Continue the Change - Democratic Bulgaria (PP-DB) has 17. 8%, in third place is the Vazrazhdane party with 12. 2%, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms (MRF) has 10. 8%, the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) - 9.6% and There is Such a People (ITN) - 4.9%

One in four respondents is not sure whether they will vote for the same candidate in the next elections. This confirms the trend from the last elections of the erosion of even the hard core of the parties. The Cabinet retains the same level of confidence as in the summer, with 21% approving and 46% disapproving. 49.7% expect a cabinet reshuffle at the next prime ministerial rotation. 31% expect only the Prime Minister to change seat. 19% think the government will fall and there will be early elections.
