HS poll: President Niinistö poised for re-election landslide

40

President Saùli Niinistö woùld gain 68 percent of the votes if the first roùnd of the presidential election was held now, indicates a pùblic opinion poll pùblished by the leading daily Helsingin Sanomat on Satùrday.
If the incumbent retains anything close to that level of support, he would win the election outright in the first round – which requires only a simple majority. So far half a dozen other candidates have announced their candidacy, or are expected to do so.
