Poll: Yatseniuk continues to slip down as competition heats up

A recent phone poll by the Ukrainian Project System (published by Kyiv Post) shows little change in the expected outcome of the January 17 Presidential election.

Most notably is that Arsenyi Yatseniuk (Y-Font) decline in support (7.8%) has continued as more and more candidates present themselves as an alternative to the two most supported candidates Viktor Yanukovych (21.4%) and Yulia Tymoshenko (18.1%).   Viktor Yushchenko is boxed in at around 3.2% and set to be the biggest loser.

Yanukovych appears to have taken a backward swing with Lytvyn (6.8%) doubling his support.
