The study by pollster IBRiS for the Rzeczpospolita daily found that backing for PiS has increased 7 percentage points compared to early December.
Meanwhile, the opposition Civic Platform (PO) party, which was voted out of power in 2015 parliamentary elections, is in second place with 19 percent, down 1 percentage point, according to the survey.
The Nowoczesna (Modern) party is third on 8 percent, down 2 percentage points, the study found.
The IBRiS poll found that the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD), which is outside parliament, would also make it into the Sejm, the lower house, on 7 percent, followed by the anti-establishment Kukiz’15 group on 6 percent, and the rural-based Polish People's Party (PSL) with 5 percent.
The poll was carried out on January 5-7, questioning 1,100 people.
