 Poll ahead of presidential election 2019 shows Tymoshenko, Hrytseko, Boiko, Vakarchuk, Poroshenko among top candidates

Today's leader of the presidential rating is former Ukraine's PM Yulia Tymoshenko who now heads Batkivshchyna party.

As reported by Censor.NET citing UNIAN, the results of the latest poll conducted by Rating Sociologival Group in April show she is significantly ahead of her main competitors.

If presidential elections were to be held in the nearest future, Yulia Tymoshenko would enjoy the greatest support among those who intend to vote and came up with a definite choice (14 percent). Runner-up is Anatolii Hrytsenko with almost 11 percent followed by Yuriii Boiko (Opposition bloc), incumbent President Petro Poroshenko, and rock singer Sviatoslav Vakarchuk, all of them sealing some 9 percent of support.

Tymoshenko's political force, Batkivshchyna, is also topping the party polls with a wide margin (16 percent). The presidential BPP Solidarity has earned 7.5 percent and ranks seventh in the latest poll. The leader of a so-called anti-rating, the study notes, is incumbent President Petro Poroshenko.

The corresponding survey was conducted April 10-22 via personal formalized interviews among 6,000 respondents aged 18 and over. The error is said to be no more than 1.5 percent.

In February 2018, Rating Group published the results of its survey, the largest in recent years, where some 30,000 respondents were interviewed. According to the report, the leader of the presidential rating was also Yulia Tymoshenko.
