Greeks losing faith in their leaders

According to a new opinion poll carried out by Public Issue confidence in the present government and the political system in general is in freefall. Just 18% of Greeks believe that the country is on the right track, (down from 38% in February) and that 84% of those polled are unhappy with the state of democracy, a figure that is reflected in approval ratings for the two major parties, PASOK and New Democracy who scored 18% and 9% respectively.

There are so many polls of Greeks. According to a Bloomberg article:

"In a poll published May 8, 54 percent of 1,000 people surveyed by ALCO for the Proto Thema newspaper said they supported the bailout and the accompanying wage and pension cuts and tax increases. A separate poll of 1,030 people by Kappa Research on May 6, the day Greece’s parliament debated the austerity program, showed 55.2 percent accepted the measures to stave off bankruptcy."

Is there a poll that is most accurate?
