Survey participants were asked which party they would vote for in case they couldn't vote for their own party for some reason.
Good Party came top on the list, with an average of 13.7 percent of voters choosing it as their backup.
Led by Meral Akşener, a former member of the ruling alliance partner Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), Good Party has been increasingly in collaboration with the main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) in recent years.
A majority of the CHP voter base, 49.5 percent, said that they would vote for Good Party if they couldn't vote for their first choice for some reason.
CHP voters' second most popular backup was the pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), with 7.9 percent opting for the HDP as their second choice.
Former Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan's Democracy and Progress Party (DEVA) was the second to choose Good Party as a backup, with 28.6 percent of their voters opting for Akşener's party as a second choice.
Voters of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) picked their alliance partner MHP as their second choice, while MHP voters opted for the AKP.
