Katrín Leads Prósent Poll For First Time

Former Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir leads in a poll by market research company Prósent for the first time, reports Morgunblaðið.

Though this is her first time ranking first in a Prósent poll, the former Prime Minister also led in a recent Gallup poll. Katrín also leads in a recent Maskína poll from May 17.

Katrín leads polls

According to the latest numbers, Katrín leads with 22.1%, followed by Halla Hrund Logadóttir (19.7%), Baldur Þórhallson (18.2%), Halla Tómasdóttir (16.2%), and Jón Gnarr (13.4%).

In total, the top five candidates comprise some 90% of votes in the latest poll.

A turning point?

The latest results, with Katrín now leading in three major polls, may represent a turning point in the presidential race. Previously, Halla Hrund Logadóttir had led for some weeks, though admittedly by a relatively small margin.

In the latest Prósent poll, Katrín leads Halla Hrund by some 2.4 percentage points, and recent polls by Gallup and Maskína show similar results. The recent Gallup and Maskína polls also show the same relative positions for the other candidates.
