POLL: Fidesz-KDNP nears 50 pc among decided voters, Jobbik took 2nd place
With seven months to go until the general elections, the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats alliance enjoys 47.4 percent support among decided voters, the research director of pollster Nézőpont Intstitute said on Thursday.
Nézőpont compiled data from 5 pollsters, Dániel Nagy said on public television. The parties’ share of votes is similar to those before the 2014 elections, making a two-third majority possible, he said.
Opposition Jobbik was backed by 19.4 percent, the Socialists by 14.26 percent, Democratic Coalition (DK) stood at 5.8 percent, green party LMP at 4.6 percent and Momentum at 3 percent. Satirical Kétfarkú Kutya Part (Two-tailed dog party) and Együtt each had 1.6 percent of the votes, while Dialogue and the Liberals both stood at 0.6 percent.
Since the last elections, new parties have been formed on the left, so the exact outcome will depend on which opposition parties decide to join forces for the race, Nagy said. Supporters of DK and the Socialists tend to fluctuate between the two leftist parties, he said. Kétfarkú Kutya, LMP and Momentum said they would not enter into a campaign coalition, which might fracture the opposition, Nagy said.
