The support of the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) dropped to 9 percent from 11, which made them the only party whose popularity decreased among definite voters.

The only party which reaches the 5 percent parliamentary threshold among definite voters is a Ferenc Gyurcsany’s Democratic Coalition (DK), standing still at 5 percent.

Politics Can Be Different (LMP) stands at 4 percent, Momentum and the joke party Hungarian Two-tailed Dog Party (Magyar Kétfarkú Kutya Párt) have 3-3 percent.
