More and more people think that Jobbik is Fidesz’s number one challenger, according to a recent poll by the Iranytu Institute for Hungarian daily Magyar Nemzet.
34 percent named Gabor Vona’s party as the strongest opposition force, while one month ago only one third of the voters shared this opinion. Meanwhile, the percentage of those who think Fidesz-KDNP has no challenger has risen from 17 to 26 percent. 7 percent named the Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) and 2 percent the green opposition Politics Can be Different (LMP) as the strongest challenger of the ruling alliance.
Iranytu Institute’s poll shows that the absolute majority of people thinks that if the elections were held this Sunday, Jobbik would have the most votes from the opposition forces. 54 percent shared this opinion, while 34 thought that a left-wing alliance would have more votes.
