Greece's anti-bailout leftists leading in opinion poll
ATHENS - Greece's anti-bailout SYRIZA party would win an election held today with a four-percent lead over the ruling Conservatives, although both parties have lost support since elections in June, an opinion poll published on Monday found.
The poll showed SYRIZA, which has promised to tear up the 130-billion bailout keeping Greece afloat if it came to power, would win with 26 percent of the vote. Prime Minister Antonis Samaras's New Democracy party would get 21.5 percent.
That compares to 29.6 percent for New Democracy and 26.9 percent for Syriza in the June parliamentary polls.
