Contempt? Looking from above? Or perhaps a sign of contempt? Such questions arise after Lena Kolarska-Bobińska’s statements on TVN24, who characterized PiS voters in this way: “The traditional and hard electorate of this party is more rural, small towns and less educated”; “We still expect that 30 percent. loyal, praying, attached, loving voters of Jarosław will move away from PiS”. And all this was said by a professor of sociology, former minister of science and higher education in the government of Platforma Obywatelska.
According to the latest Kantar survey for ‘Fakty’ TVN and TVN24, United Right can count on 31 percent of support, up 3 percentage points from a month ago. At the same time, support for the Civic Coalition declined, with 26 percent of respondents voting for it. Lena Kolarska-Bobińska, former minister of science and higher education, professor and sociologist, was asked about the results of this poll on TVN24.
This is a temporary increase in support (for the United Right – ed.). We cannot assume that until the elections in the next 7 months, the opposition will continue to grow and PiS will fall
she said. She added that “in February, the public mood has improved a lot.”
This already heralded a rise in satisfaction and translated into support for PiS
she rated. While it is worth noting that the telephone survey was conducted on a representative sample on March 14-16, 2023, and thus after the TVN report that St. John Paul II. Did this case affect the results of the said poll? It is very likely.

“30 percent loyal, praying, Jarosław-loving electorate”
How did the sociology professor, former minister of higher education, “diagnose” the consistently high level of support for the ruling party? Kolarska-Bobińska shared some pretty bold assessments, including a comment of contempt (or maybe contempt?) for the hardline Law and Justice electorate.
Law and Justice had about 30 percent for many, many years, even before it ruled. support. It was such a hard electorate, more rural, more small town, less educated. What a traditional electorate of this party
– she said.
Let’s not forget that there are always more votes of support for the ruling party than for the opposition. (…) Moreover, if there is a party that many people perceive as authoritarian, that they fear, especially if a stranger calls, they prefer to say “I don’t know” or just nod “yes”. , they are”
she added. Although the former minister apparently forgot to mention that the opposition has long been doing everything it can to make the “anti-PiS” grow, and in some circles the “anti-PiS” attitude is even a fashion.
Kolarska-Bobińska did not stop there and added more words on TVN24 proving that the PO has no respect for PiS voters.
We still expect that 30 percent. loyal, praying, attached, loving Jarosław voters will move away from PiS
Did the former minister not understand anything about it?
Moreover, the former minister apparently did not understand it. This is how she responded to the text of the portal tvp.info, which quoted the above statements and described them as “contempt”.
Don’t lie, there was no contempt. The photo is not from today’s conversation on @tvn24. And read the CBOS reports
Here’s the platform in a nutshell.
— Michał Karnowski: Do you also see that we are witnessing a major political turning point? “The opposition spent several years in coups and coups, riots and dances”
— Jacek Karnowski: Gazeta Wyborcza’s fear is understandable and justified. But Wielka Zlepka, or a joint list of opposition parties, will not help much either. It’s an illusion
— The poll and the dramatic surprise of “GW”. Jarosław Kurski to opposition leaders “This is the last call. Just don’t say you didn’t know.”
