Poll: Greek conservatives, opposition in dead heat

ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- An opinion poll shows Greece's conservative party, which leads the current governing coalition, and the opposition radical left-wing party are in a dead heat ahead of local and European parliament elections in May, with a newcomer beating long-established parties to rank third.

The poll conducted by Public Issue and published by Efimerida ton Syntakton Friday shows Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' New Democracy party and the opposition Syriza party each with 15.5 percent of respondents intending to vote for them. Newcomer To Potami (The River) party, launched by television journalist Stavros Theodorakis about two weeks ago, polled 7 percent.

Some 41 percent of respondents said they were undecided or wouldn't vote.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
