A fresh poll by the Nézőpont Institute has shown that if the general election was held this weekend, the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats (KDNP) would win 50 percent of the vote, while the opposition would garner 43 percent — a 6-point drop from its results in 2018.
According to the poll, the ruling parties have gained 3 percent among all active voters resident in Hungary since 2018. Of the 43 percent who would support the opposition alliance, some 33 percent are considered decided voters, the pollster said. The Two-tailed Dog party (Kétfarkú Kutya Párt) and Our Homeland (Mi Hazánk) poll around three percent, the highest among smaller parties but still well below the parliamentary threshold. They would need to add some 120,000 voters to their camps to make it to parliament, Nézőpont said. At the election likely to be held in April, the turnout is expected over 70 percent, or 5.7-5.8 million voters at the ballot domestically.
