Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has garnered the highest approval rating in five years this month, a poll published by the Nézőpont research institute on Thursday showed.

In the poll conducted between July 14-16, 57 percent of respondents said they would like to see Orbán in a leading political role in the future, the institute said.

Only one-third of respondents were dissatisfied with Orbán’s performance, Nézőpont said, the lowest ratio since October 2015.

The approval rating of Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office, has gone up by 14 percentage points, of Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó by 10 points and of Finance Minister Mihály Varga by 9 points since December 2019, it said, attributing the scores to the government’s Covid-19 response measures.

Tapping the public’s opinion about the opposition, Nézőpont found that the most popular opposition politician was Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony, with a 36 percent approval rating.

  1. Orban and his team are doing a great job for Hungarians. While the opposition party leaders make accusations that do nothing to improve the life for the peoples of Hungary Orban and his party do their best to keep Hungarian traditional values and culture preserved. The opposition parties only offer to lead Hungary into losing its heritage and national identity and become part of a one world mega state. Hungarians have rejected these bad ideas countless times and yet the opposition never offers anything new except a bunch of name calling. Grow up and realize no one wants to destroy Hungary except for a few of George Soros bought and paid for lap dogs.

  2. The truly amazing thing is that ONLY 78% of respondents in this latest ‘Nézőpont’ poll reject Hungary’s worst Prime Minister in living memory.

    The ‘crocodile’ obviously has extremely thick skin otherwise he would permanently go into long-overdue retirement from politics and start selling products made from his cold-blooded relatives.

  3. Prime Minister – Victor Orban and his Government have been exemplary in there Management and Control of this ongoing novel coronavirus, that challenges all.
    The past decade under the Leadership of Prime Minister – Victor Orban has been a major success story.
    It brings out, in certain other member countries, of the European Union, especially those aligned and openly supportive, to the ideas and philosophies of Mr. George Soros, an attitude that is best described as envious, in what Hungary has been able to achieve.
    There is a song titled – “Hands Off the Man”.
    The version of this song, my preference, is on the 1971 album titled Stoney End by Barbara Streisand.
    The first verse of this song encapsulates to me in words, and there meaning, what we are constantly in Hungary, subjected to, by our opposition parties and from within member countries of the European Union, directed by – Flim Flan Men.
    Read the words of the first verse of this song and there is a big message in them, of my opinion, of those who annoy and agitate us, in our beloved Hungary.
    Victor Orban has never moved from a platform, going back to 1989, when he shared the stage in Heroes Square for that momentous occasion for Hungary, that has an ingrained unequivocally position in his being, that is built on the retainment of traditional values and the historical aspects that proudly belong to Hungary.
    Hungary, in these times we all live and the challenges ahead, under the Strong Focused Leadership of Prime Minister – Victor Orban, we will as a country, stabilize, after the “zenith” effects that this virus inflicts into our lives.
    Hungary, we know comes first and foremost in the core of our Prime Minister – Victor Orban being.
    He will guide and lead us, through his intellectual and political gifted capabilities, building on his past decade of success, in the direction that he has led his beloved Hungary, back into growth trends, that we where experiencing prior to the invasion into our lives of this noval coronavirus.
    Stay Well – ALL.
