The November Vox Populi poll commissioned by public broadcaster TV Slovenija and the newspapers Dnevnik and Večer shows the senior coalition Marjan Šarec List (LMŠ) extending its lead ahead of the opposition Democrats (SDS) but it also shows more people disappointed than happy with the government for the first time this year.

The LMŠ gained 1.2 percentage points compared to the October survey to poll at 21.3%, while the SDS lost 1.2 percentage points to 13.5%. Standing out among the remaining parties are the opposition New Slovenia (NSi) and coalition SocDems, the former having jumped to third place by gaining 2.2 points to 7.4% and the latter having fallen to fourth by shedding 3.3 percentage points to 7.1%.
