The general political orientation of the Czech population is one of the topics the Public Opinion Research Centre has been systematically monitoring. In the left-right political spectrum, the Czech population is divided in a way that corresponds with most patterns in the population. The largest group of people shows average figures and their numbers are gradually decreasing towards the edges. In total, the number of left-wing respondents is slightly smaller than the number of right-wing respondents.
Supporters of the KSCM consider themselves by far the most leftist, while supporters of the US-DEU and the ODS consider themselves the most rightist. Sympathisers of the CSSD and the KDU-CSL are situated closest to the central position.
