Notice how Greggy didn't post this one :
PiS - 30%
Nowoczesna - 27%
PO - 14%
Kukiz - 9%
SLD - 5%
Which clearly shows that the middle ground has gone firmly away from PiS.
Anyway, that's the not the real news.
Furthermore, exchange rates today :

1 PLN = 6.03CZK

The złoty is in freefall, and the biggest news of the day -
Poland's new government has been given a stern warning by rating agency Standard & Poor's, which cut the country's rating and warned of a further cut.
The ratings agency on Friday downgraded Poland's foreign credit rating by a notch to BBB+ as it warns over what it said are recent moves that "weaken the independence and effectiveness of key institutions." It also put the country on negative watch, a move that suggests further downgrades could be possible...
...The change in the rating outlook to negative reflects our view that there is potential for further erosion of the independence, credibility, and effectiveness of key institutions, especially the National Bank of Poland (NBP).
In other words, financial institutions think that Poland is in trouble. Psychologically, we've broken the 4PLN/1USD barrier by a long way, and only the weekend will save the złoty from breaking the 4.50 barrier against the Euro.
