(ANSAmed) - ATHENS - According to a new poll of Greek voters, opposition political party Syriza (Radical Left) is in the lead. SkayTV reports that 80% of those polled say the country is going in the wrong direction. 72% of those polled say they are against the bailout of Greece by troika (IMF, ECB, EU) creditors. And 48% say they think Syriza - the anti-bailout party that lost a close race to the current ruling party, New Democracy, in June - will win the next election. Meanwhile, the extremist right-wing Golden Dawn party - on the opposite side of the political spectrum as Syriza - is quickly gaining in popularity among Greek voters as well (Golden Dawn has often been described as neo-Nazi). These developments show how fragile the political situation in Greece has become and suggest that things could get dicy going forward.(ANSAmed).
