Diana Șoșoacă, in second place in the notoriety list

Klaus Iohannis is the personality with the highest notoriety among the names tested, 98.9% of respondents declaring that they have heard of him, according to the survey.

In the top of notoriety, the deputy general secretary of NATO has a percentage of 89.6%, followed by Nicolae Ciucă, who has 84.4%. The head of AUR, George Simion, has 82.3%, while Cristian Diaconescu benefits from a notoriety of 68.2%, USR leader Cătălin Drula from 43.6%, and Remus Pricopie from 23.5%.

“Trust in public figures is one of the most rigorous forms of credibility assessment. In this ranking, we notice that only two political leaders pass the threshold of 30% very much and fairly much trust. Both Mircea Geoană and Emil Boc return after heavy periods of political collapse, both going through consistent processes of reinvention, far from the national political scene, one performing on the international stage, and the other in the local administration. This confirms the fact that the majority of Romanians are very demanding towards the current leaders of political parties, who are at the forefront of the public debate, preferring instead personalities less active in national politics, but with results in their fields of activity”transmitted Remus Ştefureac, director of INSCOP Research.

The survey data were collected between January 16 and 24, through the CATI method (telephone interviews), through the questionnaire. The volume of the simple, stratified sample is 1,100 people, representative of the significant socio-demographic categories (sex, age, occupation) for the non-institutionalized population of Romania, aged 18 and over.

The maximum permissible error of the data is ± 3 % at a confidence level of 95 %.
