Poll: Vast majority wants change in EU

Fully 81 percent of Hungarian respondents in a recent poll by the Szazadveg Foundation expressed “withering criticism” of the European Union’s leadership and dissatisfaction with the EU’s handling of migration while indicating a desire for change.

Seventy percent of respondents said they were

“extremely dissatisfied with the way Brussels has handled the migration crisis, the weightiest European matter of recent years,”

Szazadveg’s report said on Wednesday, adding that only 26 percent were of the opposite view.

Fully 51 percent of respondents who declared their intention to vote on Sunday said they supported Fidesz’s ruling alliance with the Christian Democrats.

The leftist Democratic Coalition is set to gain 11 percent of Hungarian votes in the EP ballot, according to Szazadveg. The nationalist Jobbik party is likely to receive 9 percent, the Socialists-Parbeszed alliance 7 percent, and the Momentum Movement 6 percent, the think-tank found. Green LMP and radical nationalist Mi Hazank was backed by 3 percent, while 7 percent of respondents were uncertain about which party to vote for, according to the phone survey conducted between May 10-18 with a sample of 1,000 randomly selected adults.
