Attitudes of the Czech public to the energy concept and coal mining

The survey results clearly indicate that the Czech public supports the end of coal mining; however, it would prefer a gradual termination over a longer period of time rather than a quick stop.

Voters from social bubbles differ in the perception of the counter-candidate and in the interpretation of the debates

Almost 30% of people lived in a social “bubble” at the time of the presidential election – that means that the vast majority of people they know voted either Jiří Drahoš or Miloš Zeman.
