With less than a month until the country joins the European Union, a new poll shows Romanians share most trust in charismatic, authoritarian leaders who seem capable of enforcing discipline.

Incumbent President Traian Basescu is unrivaled when it comes to the trust of Romanians and is followed in this regard by two other populist leaders - far-rightist Corneliu Vadim Tudor and businessman-politician Gigi Becali, according to a Public Opinion Barometer published by the Open Society Foundation on Tuesday.

According to the study, the parties with improving positions among voters are those associated to a strong leader. Democratic Prrsident Basescu leads the poll with an overwhelming 61% support among voters, followed by C.V. Tudor with 13% and Becali with 10%.

They’re followed at a considerable distance by Social Democratic Party-PSD leader Mircea Goeana (6%), ex-PSD head Adrian Nastase (4%) and Hungarian Democrats leader Marko Bela (2%).

Still, the poll shows many Romanians have not yet decided whom to vote (36%) or are determined not to vote (14%).

President Basescu is most popular among Romanian women, big city dwellers and the educated. C.V. Tudor is most popular among men aged 55 and older as well as in rural communities. Becali is more popular among youngsters, males and those who have worked abroad, are not married and live in medium-sized cities.

The Barometer is based on an opinion poll run by The Gallup Organization Romania in october this year.
