Genuinely surprising results (if exit polls are to be believed, at least) of the first round of presidential elections in Poland!
The winner is Andrzej Duda from the biggest opposition party, Law and Justice. The close second is the current president, Bronisław Komorowski... and it's a *humiliating* result for him, as - when the campaign was starting - he had such a high support that it seemed possible for him to win the elections in the first round (by getting >50% of votes). Now, it seems that he won 2% of votes less than Duda and it's very uncertain if he manages to get himself re-elected in the second round... If you ask me, he's reaping the results of his abysmally poor campaign and his arrogant attitude - when I listened to him and his supporters, it seemed that they genuinely believed that Komorowski doesn't have to do anything and that every sane person would vote for him anyway.
The biggest surprise in the elections? The amazing result (20%) of Paweł Kukiz, a rock musician with no party support and a political platform of "Fight the system". Considering that he had to fight the uphill battle of having no money, no organisation supporting him and of some mainstream media out to make him look like a loon, this results is stunning. I'd say it really shows how many Polish people are fed up with the current political scene.
Oh, and the beautiful Dr Ogórek? She got 2%. Extremely bad news for the Democratic Left Alliance that supported her... and, especially, for that party's chief who personally forced the party to go with such an exotic candidate.
