The Fidesz-Christian Democrats (KDNP) coalition widened its lead over the opposition in April, with 40% of voters supporting the ruling parties, daily Magyar Nemzet said. According to a representative survey conducted by the Nézőpont Institute last week, 34% of Hungarian voters support the opposition parties, the paper said. Since March, the ruling parties gained two percentage points, while the opposition lost three, their lowest rating yet since they announced to run together in the 2022 elections, Nézőpont said. The pollster attributed the popularity of the ruling parties to the successful national coronavirus vaccination campaign. It is also reflected in the popularity of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, with 58% of respondents saying they were satisfied with his work. Only 35% were critical of the prime minister’s performance, Nézőpont said. Fully 51% of decided voters would vote for the ruling parties if the elections were held this Sunday, Nézőpont said. The support of opposition parties stands at 43%. Nézőpont conducted the survey between April 27-28 on a sample of 1,000 respondents aged above 18.
