Opinion polls[edit]

Poll results are listed in the table below in reverse chronological order, showing the most recent first. The highest percentage figure in each polling survey is displayed in bold, and the background shaded in the leading party's colour. In the instance that there is a tie, then no figure is shaded but both are displayed in bold. The lead column on the right shows the percentage-point difference between the two parties with the highest figures. Poll results use the date the survey's fieldwork was done, as opposed to the date of publication. However, if such date is unknown, the date of publication will be given instead. Seat projections are included below the % estimation where available. "–" denotes no individual figure.

Notes
  1. ^ a b c d e f g h This survey shows its poll results projected over candidacy votes (that is, votes going for political parties, excluding blank ballots). The vote percentage in the official election is calculated including blank ballots into the estimation. In order to obtain data comparable to both the official results as well as those of other surveys, a rule of three has been applied to the survey projections, with the results of the calculation being shown instead.
  2. ^ Including ANOVA, which by the time of this survey hadn't formalised their coalition with IU yet. Individual data is as follows:
    – EU-IU: 4.3%, 1–2 seats.
    – ANOVA: 4.9%, 2 seats.
  3. ^ Including the still unspecified (at the moment) Beiras' formation, which by the time of this survey hadn't formalised the coalition with IU yet. Individual data is as follows:
    – EU-IU: 1–2 seats.
    – Beiras' formation: 7 seats.
  4. ^ Including the still unspecified (at the moment) Beiras' formation, which by the time of this survey hadn't formalised the coalition with IU yet. Individual data is as follows:
    – EU-IU: 0–1 seats.
    – Beiras' formation: 7 seats.
  5. ^ a b c d e f g Data for EU-IU.
