Moscow, 24 November: Four parties can clear the seven-per-cent threshold in the December election to the State Duma, a survey by the Public Opinion Foundation (FOM) has shown.

In response to the pollsters' question: "If in December 2011 you take part in the State Duma election, which party are you likely to vote for?" the majority of respondents (39 per cent) said they would vote for One Russia (United Russia).

The CPRF (Communist Party of the Russian Federation) came second with 12 per cent while the LDPR (Liberal Democratic Party of Russia) came third with 10 per cent.

According to the sociologists' latest survey, the A Just Russia party, which scored 9 per cent, can also clear the necessary threshold to secure seats in the State Duma. Over the last week, the party's electoral rating has increased by three percentage points.

According to the FOM survey, at present the Yabloko, the Patriots of Russia and the Right Cause parties can expect to win 1 per cent of the vote each.

Fourteen per cent of the respondents are still undecided, while 13 per cent know for sure that they will not go to the polling stations.

According to FOM surveys, 23 per cent of the respondents like One Russia's election campaign, 14 per cent like A Just Russia's campaign, 13 per cent - the LDPR's campaign and 11 per cent - the CPRF's campaign. Those who like the forms and methods of campaigning by Yabloko (3 per cent), Patriots of Russia and the Right cause (2 per cent each) are in the minority.

The FOM survey was conducted on 19-20 November among 3,000 people in 204 population centres in 64 constituent parts of the Russian Federation. The statistical error is 2.3 per cent or less.

(Channel One TV, Moscow, in Russian 1413 gmt 23 Nov 11 quoted a survey by the Peterburgskaya Politika foundation as having obtained similar results: One Russia - 57 per cent; Communists - 16 per cent; LDPR - 11 per cent; A Just Russia - 11 per cent.)
