Survey finds V4 are aligned on a variety of issues

A survey has found that two-thirds of V4 voters believe their countries share a number of characteristics and are aligned on a variety of issues.

A survey has found that the Visegrad Group countries are aligned on a variety of issues, with two-thirds of voters saying the countries share a number of characteristics.

A comprehensive survey of V4 citizens, conducted by the Nézőpont research institute and the International Visegrad Fund, found that 47 percent of voters in V4 countries identify as conservative compared with just 24 percent who are leftists, and 29 percent centrists.

Márk Lajtai, senior analyst at Central European Perspectives, said Hungary is the “most right wing” of the four countries, followed by the Czech Republic, with Poland having the most left-wing voters.

Lajtai noted that 51 percent of respondents said they were satisfied with their government’s family policy. On the subject of the economy, the majority of respondents said they were cautiously optimistic about their country’s economic performance over the next five years.

The institutes conducted a representative survey by asking 1,000 adults in each of the four countries.
