Golden Dawn was at 7.8 percent, still surprisingly high but lower then that 10.1 percent that it had polled in May in another GPO survey. PASOK [socialists] and the Communist Party tied in fourth place on 6 percent….

SYRIZA is, of course, a party of the radical left, led by a man who is something of a Chavez fan.
