Ruling Fidesz has maintained its lead over the opposition parties over the summer. At the same time, its support fell by 7 percentage points to 47 percent, citing a poll by the Nézőpont Institute.
Support for the opposition fell to “around 32 percent, even considering uncertain voters who might support a joint opposition list,” the pro-government pollster said.
Meanwhile, fully 11 percent of voters said they were undecided concerning who they would be voting for. It seems “those leaving Fidesz have become undecided rather opposition supporters,” the institute said.
The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK), Socialist, LMP, Jobbik, Párbeszéd and Momentum parties which set up a joint list in the April parliamentary election, had 16 percent support at the end of August, down from 17 percent in July, they said. DK and Mi Hazánk were the only parties to increase their support by 1 percentage point to six percent, respectively, the pollster said.
