Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party has maintained its stable lead, opposition Socialists (MSZP) and left-liberal DK have minimally strengthened, while conservative Jobbik’s and green LMP’s popularity has been falling, Hungarian pro-government daily Magyar Idok concluded, based on the recent surveys of four pollsters.
The status quo of Hungarian politics was unchanged in July, according to the recent polls by the Nezopont Institute, Publicus, Szazadveg and Zavecz Research.
The ruling Fidesz-KDNP alliance’s popularity among all voters is 34% (Nezopont: 42%, Szazadveg 36%, Zavecz 33%, Publicus 25%). The alliance of the Socialist MSZP and the small Parbeszed (Dialogue) party has 8% (6-10%). Jobbik’s popularity is around 10% (8-11%), LMP’s support is around 3%, while DK’s is 4%.
The ruling parties’ lead is even more significant among decided voters: Fidesz-KDNP 53%, MSZP 13%, Jobbik 15%, DK 6%, LMP 5%. This means that the Socialists and DK gained 1% compared to June, while Jobbik lost 2%.
