Support for the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats has remained high, with at least a third of every demographic group expressing support for the ruling parties, pollster Nézőpont Intézet said on Monday.
Citing a poll prepared in August, Nézőpont said the only opposition party that has over 10 percent support is Jobbik.
Among all voters, 41 percent support the ruling parties, the opposition Socialists-Párbeszed alliance has 6 percent, Democratic Coalition (DK) 4 percent, LMP 3 percent, Momentum 2 percent, the satirical Two-tailed Dog Party 1 percent and the Mi Hazank Movement also 1 percent.
The Fidesz-Christian Democrats would have received 54 percent on the party list if the elections had been held in August, a 1 percent drop compared to July. Jobbik would have received 17 percent, unchanged from July, and the Mi Hazánk Movement founded by Jobbik dissidents that left the organization would have received 1 percent. DK would have received 7 percent, 1 percent up from July, and LMP would have reached the 5 percent threshold to enter parliament. The joint list of the Socialists-Párbeszed would have received 9 percent support in August.
Nézőpont Institute said
the ruling parties have a 10 percent lead ahead of the entire opposition among men and 17 percent among women.
The poll was prepared by personally interviewing 2,000 people between July 19 and August 14.
