If there was an election today, Puea Thai would still win the race, but with a narrower majority : 41% instead of 48% for the 2011 elections, shows a Bangkok University Poll which surveyed 1,234 people throughout Thailand between June 18-20.

Q1: If today there was an election, who would you support as the Prime Minister between Yingluck and Abhisit? (“หากวันนี้เป็นวันเลือกตั้ง ท่านจะสนับสนุนใครเป็นนายกรัฐมนตรีระหว่างน.ส.ยิ่งลักษณ์ ชินวัตร กับนายอภิสิทธิ์ เวชชาชีว)

Microsoft Excel

BP: This is a significant fall in support for Yingluck, but Abhisit hasn’t gained at Yingluck’s expense. In fact, support for Abhisit also declined albeit slightly. Yingluck is also now slightly less popular than her party (see Q2).

Q2: If today there was an election, which party would you vote for? (“หากวันนี้เป็นวันเลือกตั้ง ท่านจะเลือกพรรคใด”)

Microsoft Excel

BP: The November 2012 figures were very similar to the 2011 election, but as you have seen support for Puea Thai has dropped by almost 8 points.  As with Abhisit, support for the Democrats has also dropped.

Q3: As of today, do you expect the Yingluck government will serve out the full term or not? (ณ วันนี้ ท่านคาดว่ารัฐบาลของ น.ส. ยิ่งลักษณ์ฯ จะทำงานครบวาระหรือไม่)

A. Last the full term of 4 years, 55.4% (61% in November 2012)
B. Last for at least 3 years, but not 4, 13.9% (7.9% in November 2012)
C. Last for at least 2 years, but not 3, 10.6% (11.8% in November 2012)
D. Unsure/don’t know, 20.1% (17.2% in November 2012)

BP: Again, overall confidence in the government serving out the term has dropped, but it is a drop as opposed to people thinking the government is about to fall.

Q4. Do you think the Prime Minister should reshuffle the Cabinet now? (ณ วันนี้ ท่านคิดว่า นายกฯ ยิ่งลักษณ์ ชินวัตร ควรมีการปรับครม. หรือไม่)

A. Yes, 45.4%
B. No, 22%
C. Unsure, don’t know, 32.6%
