A recent poll has found that Fidesz is more popular now than at any time since the 2014 general election.

According to the survey taken by the Nézőpont Institute in June, the ruling Fidesz alliance with the Christian Democrats received 55 percent among committed voters, far more than the opposition parties combined.

The study also found that the conservative opposition Jobbik party had the support of 18 percent.

The poll was conducted before Jobbik split, so no data is available concerning the new radical nationalist party Mi Hazánk.

The Socialist-Párbeszéd list had the backing of 9 percent, below the 10 percent threshold that a coalition needs to get into parliament.

Green party LMP had 6 percent while 5 percent backed the Democratic Coalition. Momentum received only 4 percent, just below the 5 percent threshold a single party needs for parliamentary seats.

Based on all respondents, 42 percent preferred the ruling parties, against 11 percent for the opposition Jobbik party and 6 percent for the Socialist Party.

The Democratic Coalition and LMP each had 3 percent, while the Momentum Movement was backed by 2 percent.
