As the 2018 general election is approaching, more and more research institutes publish the results of their polls. According to the most recent one by the Nézőpont Institue, fully 47 percent, close to 3.9 million Hungarian voters, would favour to see Viktor Orbán, the incumbent prime minister, retain his post, if the elections were held now.
Eight percent of respondents asked between November 2 and 6 said they would prefer to see Gábor Vona, the leader of radical nationalist Jobbik, as prime minister after the 2018 general election.
Bernadett Szél, the prime minister candidate of green opposition LMP, was supported by 6 percent and Ferenc Gyurcsány, a former Socialist premier and now leader of the leftist opposition Democratic Coalition (DK), by 5 percent.
Gergely Karácsony, co-leader of the opposition Párbeszéd (Dialogue) party, was supported for prime minister by 4 percent. Gábor Fodor of the Liberals were backed by 2 percent of voters, and András Fekete-Győr of the Momentum Movement by one percent, the poll showed.
