Republikon: Fidesz Has Grown Support Since Election

Support for the political opposition continued to drop after suffering a brutal electoral loss and Fidesz securing another two-thirds majority in Parliament. The latest poll of party preferences by the Republikon Institute also shows that support for the governing parties has jumped since the April 3 election.

The poll revealed that 43% of the total population supported the ruling Fidesz-KDNP parties in April. DK was the most popular party in the opposition with 10% support, while Momentum was at 7%, Jobbik at 5%, and MSZP at 4% among this group. Dialogue and Our Homeland each won the support of 3% of the public, while LMP stood at 2% and MKKP at 1%.

However, among voters who had chosen a specific party to support, 55% declared their support for Fidesz-KDNP. This represented a large jump for the governing coalition, which was at 49% in Republikon’s March poll.

Meanwhile, the opposition continues to weaken among these voters, with DK at 12%, Momentum at 9%, Jobbik at 6%, and MSZP at 5%. Dialogue and Our Homeland were both at 4% support each, while LMP was at 3% and MKKP at 2%.

The poll was conducted between April 20-24 by telephone with 1,000 persons, was balanced for gender, age, educational attainment, and location for the adult population, and has a margin of error of 3.2%. [Telex]
