A leading study has found that the ruling Fidesz party has hit a record high following among Hungarians.
The study by think-tank Nézőpont found that the ruling Fidesz alliance with the Christian Democrats had the support of 42 percent of the entire electorate, or around 3 million voters, in June.
Meanwhile, the opposition Jobbik party’s polling fortunes are waning, the party received the sympathy of just 10 percent of the respondents, down a point since April.
László Toroczkai’s new radical party, Our Homeland Movement, managed to attract just a single percent of all voters.
The opposition Socialist Party’s alliance with Párbeszéd notched up 6 percent, the leftist Democratic Coalition 4 percent, green party LMP 3 percent, liberal Momentum 2 percent, and the satirical Two-Tailed Dog Party 1 percent.
Among committed voters, Fidesz would get 55 percent in an election held this Sunday, level with its showing in April.
Jobbik would receive 17 percent in this category, 9 percent would vote for the Socialists and Párbeszéd, less than the 10 percent required for a joint list to get seats in parliament.
Support for DK increased by one point to 6 percent while backing for LMP went down to 5 percent, the threshold for a single party to get into parliament. Momentum was preferred by 4 percent.
