(MTI) – Fidesz has maintained its lead despite a drop in support, while the opposition Socialists and radical nationalist Jobbik garnered more support in mid-July than a month earlier, a poll by Ipsos sent to MTI on Friday showed.
Support for Fidesz dropped from 37 percent to 33 percent among all voters while support for the Socialists grew from an all-time low of 8 percent in June to 10 percent in July. Still, the Socialists failed to catch up with Jobbik whose support grew from 12 percent to 13 percent over the same period.
The leftist Democratic Coalition received 2 percent in July as against 3 percent in June and support for the E-PM has been steady at 2 percent among all voters for the third month in a row. LMP also received 3 percent support in every month since the April general election, Ipsos said.
Among decided voters who are certain to go to the polls, Fidesz stood at 56 percent, Jobbik at 16 percent, the Socialists at 15 percent, LMP at 4 percent, E-PM at 3 percent and DK also at 3 percent in July.
The poll was conducted by interviewing 1,000 people aged above 18 between July 18 and 21.
