According to a fresh Nézőpont poll, Péter Márki-Zay, the opposition alliance’s prime ministerial candidate, is less popular than the left-wing.
The survey found that of the 42 percent of left-wing decided voters, only 24 percent back the mayor of Hódmezővásárhely. Neither has Márki-Zay managed to add prospective voters to the opposition camp’s base, the think-tank added. Nézőpont insisted that a month after Márki-Zay won the opposition primary, he has not made a national breakthrough in popularity.
What's more, 56 percent of committed voters back the ruling Fidesz party, while 42 percent support the left wing. Far from everyone in the camp of voters critical of the government accepts Márki-Zay, the pollster added, with only 24 percent of active voters finding him prime ministerial material, and only 58 percent of left-wing voters backing Márki-Zay as a potential prime minister. Nézőpont’s representative poll of 1,000 adults was conducted by phone from Nov. 8 to 10.
