Presidential front-runner Moon Jae-in widened his lead in a new opinion poll released Friday as runner-up Ahn Cheol-soo's numbers plummeted.

Moon, a former leader of the liberal Democratic Party, garnered an approval rating of 41 percent, up 1 percentage point from last week, while Ahn, co-founder of the center-left People's Party, declined 7 points to 30 percent, according to Gallup Korea.

Hong Joon-pyo of the conservative Liberty Korea Party came in a distant third at 9 percent, followed by Sim Sang-jeung of the progressive Justice Party at 4 percent and Yoo Seong-min of the splinter conservative Bareun Party at 3 percent.

The survey was conducted from Tuesday through Thursday on 1,004 voters nationwide. It had a margin of error of 3.1 points at the 95 percent confidence level. (Yonhap)
