Budapest, April 3 (MTI) – A Fidesz victory at Sunday’s general election is almost certain, but the size of the ruling party’s victory, radical nationalist Jobbik’s gains and LMP’s ability to gain entry to parliament will remain open questions, the pollster Median said on Thursday, citing fresh data from a poll.
Fidesz led with 36 percent against the leftist opposition alliance’s 18 percent on the whole sample. Fidesz trailed the left 47 to 23 percent among voters with clear party preferences, Median said.
Jobbik had 15 percent support in the whole sample and 21 percent among decided voters. LMP had 3 percent support, below the 5 percent threshold of entry to parliament.
The percentage of people promising to turn out for the ballot rose to 62 percent. Voter turnout at elections in 2006 and 2010 was 56 and 59 percent, respectively.
Fully 5 percent of respondents indicated they would vote for one of the parties which had recently emerged in the election race.
The poll was taken on March 21-25 on a sample of 1,200.
