According to a survey conducted by the Nézőpont Institute, the Fidesz-Christian Democrats (KDNP) coalition widened its lead over the opposition in April, with 40 percent of voters supporting the ruling parties.
The data shows that 34 percent of Hungarian voters support the opposition parties. Since March, the ruling parties gained two percentage points, while the opposition lost three, their lowest rating yet since they announced to run together in the 2022 elections.
Nézőpont attributed the popularity of the ruling parties to the successful national coronavirus vaccination campaign. It is also reflected in the popularity of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, with 58 percent of respondents saying they were satisfied with his work. Only 35 percent were critical of the prime minister’s performance.
The survey found 51 percent of decided voters would vote for the ruling parties if the elections were held this Sunday. The support of opposition parties stands at 43 percent. Nézőpont conducted the survey between April 27-28 on a sample of 1,000 respondents aged above 18.
