A survey by the Nézőpont Institute has found that a large majority of active voters, 68 percent, saw the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats (KDNP) winning the general election if it were held this Sunday.
The poll found that only 15 percent of active voters anticipated an opposition win. Pro-government voters are overwhelmingly confident about the elections, Nézőpont said. Fully 88 percent anticipated Fidesz-KDNP being re-elected, 11 percent expressed uncertainty, while a mere 1 percent reckoned with an opposition victory, Nézőpont said. Among opposition voters, 42 percent saw their side winning as against 36 percent who anticipated a victory by the ruling parties, Nézőpont said. Active voters have not changed their minds since December 2021, Nézőpont said, suggesting the “leftist parties’ failure to get organised”. “Due to constant delays in finalising a joint list, delays in finding common ground on campaign issues, a lack of messages offering an alternative and [joint prime ministerial candidate] Péter Márki-Zay’s weak campaign performance, the past month has failed to bring about positive turn for the anti-government forces,” Nézőpont said.
