Budapest (MTI) – Support for political parties has remained practically unchanged this month compared with May, with the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance maintaining its lead over the opposition, according to a fresh poll released by the Nézőpont Institute on Wednesday.
Among all voters, support for Fidesz-KDNP stood at 28 percent, radical nationalist Jobbik came second with 13 percent, the Socialists received 8 percent and the leftist Democratic Coalition 7 percent, the poll commissioned by weekly Heti válasz said. In this group, LMP held 4 percent, and Együtt and Dialogue for Hungary (PM) 1 percent each, which is below the parliamentary threshold.
The pollster noted that a unified leftist opposition made up of the Socialists, DK, Együtt and PM with a combined 17 percent support would narrowly beat out Jobbik.
Among decided voters with clear party preferences, support for Fidesz-KDNP was 40 percent, for Jobbik 24 percent, for the Socialists 11 percent and for DK 10 percent. LMP in this camp stood with 7 percent, Együtt with 2 percent and PM with 1 percent.
Nézőpont conducted the phone poll with a sample of 1,000 voting-age adults between June 17 and 19.
