Poll: Government parties maintain support despite disputes
Budapest, February 28 (MTI) – The ruling parties maintained their lead in support for political parties during February despite some sharp political disputes and demonstrations during the month, the pollster Századvég said citing its latest poll on Sunday.
The Fidesz-Christian Democrats governing alliance received the support of 34 percent of all Hungarians in a poll prepared by interviewing 1,000 randomly selected adults between February 20 and 25, Századvég said.
The Jobbik was supported by 13 percent and the opposition Socialists by 9 percent of all voters. The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) received 6 percent, green opposition LMP received 4 percent and Együtt 1 percent of all votes. The smaller parties of the left wing, including the PM party and the Liberals, received less than 1 percent each, according to the poll.
A total of 46 percent of decided voters said they support the ruling parties, the same as in the spring of 2014, when the last general elections were held. Support for Jobbik was 23 percent in this group, and for the Socialists it was 14 percent. Some 9 percent of decided voters said they support DK and 4 percent support LMP. Együtt, PM and the Liberals each garnered less than 1pc of support.
