Gitanas Nausėda evoked hope among 43.5% of a sample of Lithuanian voters, and Ingrida Šimonytė prompted this emotion among 26% of those polled. At the same time, Šimonytė evoked fear among 19.3% of respondents and evoked humiliation among 11%. Nausėda caused these emotions among 7.5% and 2.3% of the respondents, respectively.
This is the result of a study conducted by the Foundation for the Study of Mass Emotions of the Open Mind Foundation between the 17th until the 22nd of May.
With the help of sociological Internet panels, 1,000 Lithuanian residents who were 18 years old or older were surveyed. The sample of respondents reflects the population of Lithuania in terms of its socio-demographic characteristics (gender, age, place of residence).
According to the opinion of the OMF Foundation President, the results of these studies speak of Gitanas Nausėda’s convincing leadership at the moment.
