The ruling alliance of Fidesz and the Christian Democrats has maintained its lead in January, with 50 percent of decided voters declaring support in a Nézőpont poll published on Tuesday.

Support for the non-parliamentary liberal opposition Momentum Movement was 13 percent, while both the conservative Jobbik party and the leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) stood at 10 percent.

Five percent backed the Socialist-Párbeszéd alliance, well below the 10 percent threshold needed to get into parliament on a joint party list, and 4 percent supported the green LMP party.

As for the other non-parliamentary parties, the satirical Two-tailed Dog Party (MKKP) and radical nationalist Mi Hazánk chalked up 4 percent and 3 percent respectively, below the 5 percent threshold for seats.

Among all voters, the ruling alliance stood at 41 percent.

On the opposition side, none of the parties could attract two-digit support among all voters. Jobbik was backed by 8 percent, and DK by 7 percent. The Socialist-Párbeszéd alliance and MKKP were supported by 4 percent each. LMP garnered 3 percent and Mi Hazánk 2 percent among all voters.

Nézőpont interviewed a representative sample of 1,000 respondents over the phone between January 10 and 16.
