The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat (KDNP) alliance has increased its lead over the opposition among decided voters, garnering the support of 56% two months before the European parliamentary election on May 26, a poll by the Nézőpont Institute shows. Fidesz-KDNP’s votes would translate into 14 seats in the European Parliament should the election be held this Sunday. The ruling parties outperformed their results at last April’s parliamentary election by 9 percentage points, it said. Opposition parties’ popularity has remained relatively unchanged, Nézőpont said. Among decided voters, the Socialist-Párbeszéd alliance was on 11%, the Democratic Coalition (DK) 6%, green LMP 5%, and Momentum 4%. Conservative Jobbik was preferred by 12%, a fall of 8 percentage points compared to the 2018 parliamentary election, Nézőpont said. Such results would ensure 3 seats at the European Parliament for Jobbik, 2 for Socialist-Párbeszéd, and one each for DK and LMP.
Among the whole population, Fidesz-KDNP has 42% while Jobbik 8% of the vote, Nézőpont said. The Socialist-Párbeszéd alliance has 7% and DK 4%. LMP and the satirical Two-tailed dog party have the support of 3% each, Momentum 2% and radical nationalist Mi Hazánk 1%. The poll was conducted at the request of daily Magyar Nemzet between March 1 and 28 on a representative sample of 5,000 people.
