Nézőpont, a pollster often seen as favorable toward ruling party Fidesz, published a public opinion poll claiming that Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony would have performed slightly better in a general election against Prime Minister Viktor Orbán than Péter Márki-Zay, the eventual winner of the oppostion’s primary election.

However, Nézőpont concluded that Orbán could win against either candidate, and that his victory in next year’s parliamentary elections is all but guaranteed. [Telex]
