If Parliamentary elections were held today, the joint opposition would defeat the ruling Fidesz-KDNP parties by 13 percentage points, according to a new survey by pollster Medián.
The poll shows that the opposition’s candidates would win 44% of the vote in the capital, while the Fidesz-KDNP camp would only get 31%. In addition, if a mayoral election were held today in Budapest, Mayor Gergely Karácsony would also beat a generic Fidesz-KNDP challenger by 46-31%.
Moreover, 29% of poll respondents expressed a more favorable opinion of Karácsony since the Budapest mayor withdrew from his campaign to be the opposition’s prime ministerial candidate, and that the Hungarian Two-Tailed Dog Party would gain seats in Parliament if it were only up to Budapest voters.
The poll of 1,000 people was conducted by Medián in the third week of October.
