Commissioned by the Institute of Public Policy, the Public Opinion Barometer was carried out by the Center for Sociological Investigations and Marketing CBS-AXA. CBS-AXA director Ion Jigau said that if elections were held, the picture would be different because the diaspora influences the outcome. The current poll involved only people from Moldova.

Institute of Public Policy director Arcadie Barbarosie said things can change significantly in several weeks and the use of polls as a direct forecast for elections is not correct. But these polls can be used to make forecasts.

The poll was conducted between March 28 and April 7 on a representative sample of 1,104 people from 85 settlements, except for the Transnistrian region. The margin of sampling error is plus-minus 3%.
