DescriptionA new opinion poll conducted in selected cities supports the conclusions of analysts studying the single-mandate races that the Communist Party is losing ground to Unified Russia (see "RFE/RL Russian Political Weekly," 19 November 2003) . VTsIOM-A together with Radio Mayak conducted a survey on 22 November in three Russian cities, Belgorod, Vladimir, and Kyshtym (in Chelyabinsk Oblast), which showed Unified Russia with 32.7 percent -- two times more support than the Communists with 14.3 percent. These cities were selected because they voted in 1995 and 1999 exactly the way Russia as a whole voted, strana.ru reported on 24 November. The results of the VtsIOM-A/Mayak survey differs from that of other recent opinion polls, which were conducted across a larger number of Russian cities, and showed support split between Unified Russia and the Communist Party.
According to this new poll, the Communists did poorly even in Belgorod, where the Communists typically have strong support, "Kommersant-Daily" reported on 25 October. In the VTsIOM-A/Mayak survey, Vladimir Zhirinovskii's Liberal Democratic Party got 8 percent support, the Union of Rightist Forces got 7.5 percent, and Yabloko got 5.2 percent.
