<p>Budapest, July 2 (MTI) - The governing Fidesz party has maintained its lead over its main rival Socialists while the radical nationalist Jobbik has lost some of its support since the general elections of April, a recent Szonda Ipsos poll carried by national daily Nepszabadsag on Friday showed.</p>
The poll was conducted on a representative sample of 1,500 adults from June 16 to 22.
If the elections were held next Sunday, 63 percent of voters turning up at the polling stations with a clear party preference would support Fidesz, two percentage points more than a month before. The Socialists would be backed by 18 percent (as against 16 percent in May), Jobbik by 12 percent (down from 16 percent) and the green Politics Can Be Different (LMP) by 5 percent (down by one percentage point since May) in the decided voter group.
Among the whole voting sample, Fidesz s support stood at 41 percent in June. The ruling party is especially popular with the middle class. The Socialists core voter base seemed to be unaffected by the electoral defeat as the party was continued to be backed by 12 percent.
Jobbik was supported by 7 percent and LMP by 4 percent of the electorate in June.
Hungarians appear to have remained relatively active as 56 percent of the sample said they would turn up for the vote. During the first round of the general election, the turnout was slightly more than 64 percent.
