Fidesz and its Christian Democrat ally have benefitted from improved sentiment in the country, notwithstanding the war in Ukraine and sanctions, according to surveys by the Nézőpont Institute and the pollster Medián.
Nézőpont said on Saturday that the majority of voters continue to support the ruling parties. Whereas both Nézőpont and Medián found in December that two-thirds of Hungarians thought that the country was headed in the wrong direction, at the end of February and beginning of March, the proportion of pessimists dropped to 57 and 58 percent, the pollsters found respectively.
Nézőpont found that the proportion of optimistic Hungarians increased from 26 percent to 32 percent, while Medián registered 27 percent to 37 percent. Nézőpont found that 52 percent of decided voters supported the Fidesz-led coalition, while Medián’s polling registered 51 percent.
The Democratic Coalition, the largest opposition party, had the support of 12 percent, according to Nézőpont, while Medián registered 14 percent. Nézőpont said 9 percent of respondents favoured the radical opposition Mi Hazank, while Medián found the liberal Momentum with the same proportion.
The Two-Tailed Dog Party would garner a sufficient number of voters to enter parliament, according to both pollsters, while the conservative Jobbik party was borderline. The other opposition parties would not get enough votes to cross the threshold for representation, according to both surveys.
Well, paint me green and call me a cucumber! The voters prefer trustworthy, reliable leaders who do what they say and put their nation’s interests ahead of foreign, elitist, globalist-socialist agenda. Imagine!
Polls re just … polls. Unfortunately there’s a lack of political discourse and debate, facts often appear ancillary and accountability of our Politicians (press, etc.) is lackluster. All of which would benefit all of us, greatly!
@michaelsteiner – our Leaders will be OK, as long as the Brussels Bureaucrats send us the Euro Billions. We’re hardly self sufficient. I would encourage anyone to match up our “economic growth” numbers with the European Union funds dispensed over the years. I think you’ll find there is a very strong correlation.
