ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek anti-bailout party Syriza's opinion poll lead over the ruling conservatives widened to 3.1 percentage points from 2.6 points, a survey showed on Saturday, eight days before the country's election.

The survey by Kapa Research for Sunday's newspaper To Vima showed Syriza would win 31.2 percent of the vote if the election was held now, ahead of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' New Democracy party which would get 28.1 percent.
