Hungary’s ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance would end up with 55 percent of the vote if elections were held this weekend, as against 44 percent garnered by the joint list of the left-wing opposition parties and 1 percent by other party lists, pollster Real-PR 93 said on Tuesday.
By this autumn practically a two-party system has emerged in Hungary, with right-wing Fidesz and the joint list of the left-wing opposition fighting for victory in the general election next spring, the pollster said, adding that
the other parties are expected to attract but a tiny fragment of votes.
Among all voters, the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance stands at 46 percent, the opposition alliance at 42 percent and other parties at 2 percent.
A tenth of those asked were unable or unwilling to disclose their party preference.
Real-PR 93 interviewed a representative sample of 1,000 respondents over the phone between October 19 and 21.
As we wrote yesterday, Ferenc Dancs, the deputy state secretary for North America of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry, said that the USA sponsors broadcasts on Radio Free Europe intended to undermine the Hungarian prime minister. Details HERE.
