In March survey the Public Opinion Research Center examined how the inhabitants of the Czech Republic assess the political culture of public officials and politicians: members of the governments, deputies, senators, representatives of regional and local self-governments and politicians from current parliamentary political parties.
In March 2020 within the regular survey the Public Opinion Research Centre questioned respondents about their confidence in constitutional institutions. In this month there was a question about their trust to the Chambers of Parliament, the President, the Government, and Local and Regional Councils.
In a survey conducted by Public Opinion Research Centre in March 2020, we investigated how people trust to political Parties and whether they are willing to take part in elections to the Chamber of Deputies. In the press release, there are two different types of information: the likely voter model and the party preferences.
The likely voter model indicates the anticipated result of hypothetical elections to the Chamber of Deputies in the time of conducting the survey.
The party preferences give us information about public sympathy for political parties in the group of citizens who have voting right and there is also included a part of citizens who will not take part in elections or they do not know who to vote for.
In its regular February survey the Public Opinion Research Centre further examined whether people think that politicians are interested in the views of citizens, and whether in the opinion of the Czech public, people have certain opportunities to influence the public sphere.
In February 2020 Public Opinion Research Centre included a block of questions connected to NATO and defense of Czech Republic in general. Questions focused mainly on position of the Czech Republic between other states, its possibilities of defense against potential threat.
In February 2020 Public Opinion Research Centre carried out a survey about NATO. Within the project were examined satisfaction with membership in NATO. 58% of Czech citizens are satisfied with the Czech Republic's membership in the North Atlantic Alliance, almost a quarter (24%) is dissatisfied.
As a part of February survey there were some questions focused on possibilities of citizens to influence changes in laws.
Respondents were evaluating effectiveness of some methods to achieve this goal like work in a political party, petitions, demonstrations, work in labour unions, litigation, activity in a social network, letters to media, letters to deputies, violent actions, work in a church, hunger-strike, work in a civic association, strike, and blockade.
