POLL: Support Fidesz Down, Jobbik and LMP Enlarged
Budapest (MTI) – Support for the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democratic party alliance has dropped over the past month, while the radical nationalist Jobbik and the green LMP have enlarged their camp, pollster Nezopont said.
The poll was conducted from November 3 to 7 with a representative sample of 1,000 adults.
The “spectacular protests” against plans to introduce an internet tax have left their mark on party preferences, Nezopont said.
Across the whole electorate, the Fidesz-Christian Democrats had 29 percent support (down from 32 percent in mid-October), while the opposition Socialists stood at 7 percent (up from 6 percent). Jobbik raised its camp from 11 to 14 percent. Ferenc Gyurcsany’s Democratic Coalition had 6 percent support (up from 5 percent) while LMP was backed by 8 percent (up from 5 percent). Support for E-PM stood at 1 percent both in October and November.
In Nezopont’s category “potential voters”, the governing parties recorded 40 percent support, Jobbik 26 percent, the Socialists 9 percent, DK 11 percent, LMP 8 percent and E-PM 4 percent.
