Latest Turkish poll shows slip in support for ruling Islamist-rooted AK Party

ANKARA - Support for Turkey's ruling AK Party has slipped by 1.6 points from June's election to 39.3 percent, a survey from pollster Gezici showed on Monday, casting doubt on the AKP's chances of forming a single-party government after a Nov.1 vote.
The center-right, Islamist-rooted AKP founded by President Tayyip Erdogan lost its single-party majority in June for the first time since coming to power in 2002, taking 40.9 percent of the vote.
After failing to secure a coalition, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has formed an interim cabinet ahead of the November re-run.
