LISBON, Portugal – An opinion poll in Portugal puts the governing Social Democrat Party roughly level with the main opposition Socialist Party five months ahead of a general election, confounding predictions that the government's austerity policies would bring a voter backlash.
The poll of voting intentions published Thursday in daily Jornal de Negocios gave the Socialists 37.3 percent and the Social Democrats 37.2 percent, with other parties making up the rest.
