Most Hungarians prefer to spend time with those whose political views they agree with, a new study has found. The results show that Fidesz-KDNP supporters are the most politically homogenous group, but the opposition’s voters are not much better in this regard either.
According to the empirical data, 69% of Fidesz-KDNP voters tend to associate more with like-minded supporters, while only 7% of them have more contact with those who support the political opposition.
On the political opposition side, between 59-77% of them have more contact with those holding similar political views, depending on the party. At the same time, only 9-19% of them, again depending on party, have more friends and acquaintances in the Fidesz camp.
The survey of 2,000 adult Hungarians, balanced by gender, age, and location, was conducted by the IDEA Institute between August 31 and September 7.
