In the latest Sri Lanka Opinion Tracker Survey (SLOTS) polling, the net favourability rating of NPP/JVP leader A.K. Dissanayake fell 15 points to -44 points in July while SJB leader Sajith  Premadasa’s favourability rating increased 4 points to -44 points.

President Ranil Wickremasinghe’s favourability rating remained the same (-52).

Favourability estimates for each month are based on 100–400 interviews conducted during that month and during a few weeks before and afterwards to ensure a minimum set of responses. The July 2023 estimates are based on 367 (Sajith Premadasa), 309 (A.K. Dissanayake), 367 (Ranil Wickremasinghe), and 154 (Gotabaya Rajapaksa) interviews.

Negative scores, i.e., a net favourability rating of less than zero, means that the individual or institution is unpopular. Only positive scores, i.e., net favourability is more than zero, mean that the individual or institution is popular on average.
