Syriza, saw its poll lead grow to 6.5
points on Monday, according to a survey for the University of Macedonia
conducted for Greece's SKAI Television, up from a 4.5 point lead shown
by the same pollster last week.
Syriza would garner 33.5 percent of the vote, up
from 31.5 percent, while Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' New Democracy
party, which has pushed through unpopular reforms as part of an
international bailout, stood unchanged on 27 percent.
