Some 72% of Russians said they would vote for Putin if presidential elections were to be held next Sunday, the pollster said.
Just 5% of respondents said they would vote for Liberal Democratic Party leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky and 4% said they would back Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov.
The pollster says Putin’s electoral rating has been at maximum levels over the past several months: 70% in August-October and 72% in early November.
The level of confidence in Putin has been also persistently high — 84%/ Almost half of respondents (46%) said they “are more likely to trust” Putin, while 38% said they certainly trust the Russian leader.
The figures have been almost unchanged over the past few months. In October, 84% of Russians said they had confidence in Putin, while in September 83% of respondents said they trusted the Russian leader.
