To answer the question, write “Vedomosti”, 15% of respondents stated that nothing was heard about Semenov and his support for the President, but it will not stop them from supporting it. Another 3% stated that Semenov know and are also ready to vote for him.

Thus, support for the fictitious candidate, “Putin” expressed 18% of Russians.

At the same time against Semenov spoke 71% of the respondents, 8% of which it, too, is “heard”.

The remaining respondents (11%) were not defined with the position.

The second survey, “Levada”, on the actually existing policies, showed that Putin’s candidacy for a new term support 48% of Russians, and of those who intend to come to the polls — 60%.

The rating of other politicians made up only a few percent: 3% for Gennady Zyuganov, 2%, Alexei Navalny, etc. Finally, more than two thirds of respondents expressed the desire to continue to live under the rule of Putin after 2018.

The results of the experiment with a fictitious character sociologists explained that the unconditional support of the authorities is for the population of socially approved response. Earlier, the “Levada” has already held a poll about a fictitious “Party of youth”, which have gained more percentage of votes than some of the actually existing party.
