POLL – Fidesz lead solid ahead of Oct 3 local election – Median

Budapest, September 23 (MTI) – Hungary’s Fidesz centre-right governing party kept its solid lead in September ahead of the local elections to be held on October 3, according to a poll by Median in Thursday’s HVG online.

Backing for Fidesz among all voters eased to 46 percent in September from 47 percent in August while support for the opposition Socialists firmed to 13 percent from 11 percent. Green party Politics Can Be Different had the backing of 4 percent among all voters.

    In the category of decided voters, Fidesz notched up 66 percent support as against the Socialist party’s 17 percent. LMP had 5 percent in this group.

    Core support for the radical nationalist party Jobbik declined from 14 percent to 10 percent.

    When the survey was carried out less than a month before the October election, only half of respondents said they were certain to go out to polling booths.

    Viktor Orban, the prime minister, was by far the most popular politician, according to Median. He is followed by the new president, Pal Schmitt.
