Some 12.7 percent of respondents said in the latest poll that they would vote for the LSDP, led by Vilija Blinkeviciute, if general elections were held next Sunday, slightly down from 14 percent who said so in September.

The Democrats were followed closely in third place by Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis' Homeland Union with 11.3 percent support, up from 9.4 percent.

Further down the list is the Lithuanian Farmers and Greens Union with 8.9 percent (7.4 percent in September), followed by another two opposition parties, the Labor Party and the Freedom and Justice, both with 5.8 percent (unchanged and down from 6.2 percent, respectively).

The Homeland Union's coalition partners, the Liberal Movement and the Freedom Party, saw their support edge up to 5.4 percent and 2.7 percent, respectively, from 4.9 percent and 2.5 percent in September.
