Presidential Hopefuls to Discuss Election Campaign on Vísir’s Panel

Presidential candidates Baldur Þórhallsson, Jón Gnarr, and Halla Hrund Logadóttir will discuss recent poll results and campaign dynamics on Vísir’s panel show Pallborðið today. Former Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir, who is polling strongly, will not attend the panel due to prior commitments.

Presidential race heats up

As noted by Vísir, a recent survey conducted by Maskína found that former Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir leads the race with 31.4% support, enjoying a statistically significant advantage over Baldur Þórhallsson. (Katrín was invited to participate in Vísir’s panel discussion but could not attend due to prior commitments.)

The survey further found that 24% of respondents support Baldur Þórhallsson, 18.9% support Jón Gnarr, and 10.5% back Halla Hrund. As noted by Vísir, there are signs that the race is heating up; there have been reports of a smear campaign against Baldur Þórhallsson and Jón Gnarr recently criticised Katrín, accusing her of abandoning the Prime Minister’s office during a job half-done.

Pallborðið will be broadcast live on Vísir and Stöð 2 Vísir at 1 PM today. Presidential elections in Iceland will be held on June 1.
