The investigation period was from March 1 to 2, and was conducted before candidate Ahn Cheol-soo of the People's Party resigned, and candidate Ahn was also included in the results.

Democratic Party Candidate Jae-myung Lee 37.1%, People's Power Candidate Seok-yeol Yoon 42.1%, the gap was 5 percentage points, and candidate Yoon took the lead outside the margin of error.

Justice Party candidate Shim Sang-jung took 1.8 percent, and People's Party candidate Ahn Cheol-su, who announced his resignation, had 7.4 percent.

9.6% of those who answered that they did not support any candidate or did not know.

Comparing with the first poll of the three broadcasting companies in the middle of last month, Candidate Lee rose by 1.9 percentage points, while Candidate Yoon rose by 2.9 percentage points.

Compared to last month's survey, the gap between the two candidates' middle class approval ratings widened from 5 percentage points to 7 percentage points.

By region, in the 'key game' metropolitan area, candidate Yoon had the upper hand in Seoul, while Incheon and Gyeonggi Province were close.

The chances of winning were Jae-myung Lee 41.3% and Seok-yeol Yoon 47.1%, with more responses predicting candidate Yoon.

Regarding the nature of the presidential election, 35.8% needed to empower the ruling party candidate to extend the government, and 54.5% needed to strengthen the opposition candidate for regime change.

Party approval ratings were 34.5% for the Democratic Party, 38.2% for People's Power, 4.3% for the Justice Party, and 4.7% for the People's Party.

The intention to vote reached 97.7%, including 87.9% of active voters,
