According to the polling institutes, the FPÖ would be well ahead of the Social Democrats (SPÖ) who won the last elections. The SP's coalition partner, the conservative People's Party (ÖVP) came in third place.
According to a study by the Linzer market institute, published in the newspaper Der Standard on the weekend, the FPÖ had 27 percent. The SPÖ was in second place with 22, and the ÖVP in third with 19 percent.
In both polls, the opposition centre-left Greens came in before the liberal-conservative NEOS, and Team Stronach had hardly any support. A total of 404 people were polled.
The results from the Unique research institute, published in the magazine Profil (with 500 participants) were similar. The FPÖ had 28 percent, the SPÖ 25 and the ÖVP 22 percent.
