Before Tuesday’s duel between the two candidates, Markíza TV published the aforementioned survey by the Focus agency. The difference between the candidates is within statistical error. The head of the Focus agency, Martin Slosiarik, therefore still sees the chances as 50 to 50. “The battle is so close that the data today cannot tell who will actually win,” admitted Slosiarik.

Korčok won the first round of the presidential election with 42.5 percent of the vote, ahead of Pellegrini, who received 37 percent of the vote. The second round will be this Saturday, April 6.

The result of the presidential election has never been as close as the Focus poll predicts. In 1999, Rudolf Schuster (57%) defeated Vladimír Mečiar (42%) by a margin of 15 percent. In 2004, Mečiar was also defeated by Ivan Gašparovič, and by an even greater margin of 60 to 40 percent. In 2009, Gašparovič (55%) also won over Iveta Radičová (44%).

In 2014, then Prime Minister Robert Fico suffered a crushing defeat, losing to the then almost unknown businessman from Poprad, Andrej Kiska, by almost twenty percent of the vote. In 2019, the current head of state, Zuzana Čaputová, received over 58 percent of the vote, and her opponent, Maroš Šefčovič, received 41.6 percent of the vote. Čaputová is no longer running for a second term.
