Apart from Fidesz, now at 31%, the only party that has grown since July, however slightly, is the Democratic Coalition (DK), from 5% to 6% among all voters. Jobbik is still the second strongest political group, but has slipped from 12% to 10%; the Socialists (MSzP) have lost 1%, and now stand at 8%.
If elections were held today, the survey shows that LMP would barely make it into Parliament, standing now at 5%. The rest of the parties are below 2% in electoral support.
More than one third of those polled, 34%, indicated no party preference, online current affairs portal hvg.hu reported.
The Fidesz lead is even more significant among committed voters, now standing at 49%, further rising from July. The poll measured 18% support for Jobbik, 12% for the Socialists, 10% for DK and somewhat better, 6% support for LMP among committed voters. The others all polled below 2%.
The Závecz poll was conducted over the period November 6-14, on a sample of 1,000 people representing the populace of the country aged 18 and over.
