The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats (KDNP) have maintained their “massive lead” according to a poll conducted in August, with 53 percent of decided voters stating they would support the party alliance if the elections were held now, daily Magyar Nemzet said on Wednesday, citing a poll by Nézőpont.
The number of opposition supporters stayed unchanged or dropped last month, the paper said.
The Democratic Coalition (DK) and Momentum would receive 11 percent each on the party list.
Support for conservative Jobbik was 8 percent among “active voters” according to the poll made last month, representing a 1 percentage point drop from the previous month. Nézőpont said, noting that support for Jobbik had been below 10 percent for several months.
The voter base of the Socialists-Párbeszéd decreased by a similar extent to 6 percent among decided voters and
the satirical Two-tailed Dog Party (4 percent), LMP (3 percent) and radical Mi Hazánk (3 percent) all stayed below the 5 percent threshold for gaining seats in parliament, Nezopont said.
Among all voters, Fidesz-KDNP stood at 41 percent, similarly to the previous month, maintaining a significant lead. Since January 2018, the ruling parties have been supported by at least 38 percent each month, or around 3 million people, the paper said. On the opposition side, none of the parties could attract two-digit support among all voters.
DK and Momentum received 7 percent each, or slightly more than 500,000 supporters, it added. Support for Jobbik dropped by 1 percentage point to 6 percent and the Socialists-Párbeszéd received 5 percent, meaning that neither of them have half million supporters, the paper said.
As we published a survey yesterday, fully 57 percent of respondents in a Századvég survey said they had a positive view of Budapest Mayor István Tarlós, while 41 percent said they preferred Gergely Karácsony, the opposition’s candidate in the upcoming municipal election. Details HERE.
