Commissioned by 21 Research Center, the Iránytű Institute conducted a poll as to voters’ thoughts on the reasons for another two-thirds victory by Fidesz.
Among the questions were whether it would increase the opposition’s chances if Ferenc Gyurcsány retired from politics. Their research found that three-fourths of non-government voters felt that it would increase the opposition’s chances if the former prime minister was out of the picture.
But perhaps more surprising was that even 42% of DK voters agreed with this. Iránytű’s analysis showed that although DK voters like their party’s president, they understand that his presence turns off many voters and makes it impossible to reach certain people. [Népszava]
