Abstract

The article is an analysis of a detailed sociological questionnaire about how today´s citizens of the Czech Republic rate the current post-communist regime in relation to the pre-1989 communist regime. The questionnaire was completed by 4995 respondents. The poll took place in May 2010, a week before the general election in the Czech Rep. The article compares the results of the poll to the results of the general election and to official (much less detailed) opinion polls conducted in the Czech Republic by the official polling agencies. The results of the poll show a remarkable level of dissatisfaction with the current political situation, regardless of the party political allegiance of the respondents. According to Czech sociologists, this is the first detailed analysis of this issue ever done in the Czech Republic.
