Fidesz retains massive lead despite fewer supporters - poll

Budapest, September 21 (MTI) - The ruling Fidesz party has retained its massive lead among decided voters, though it has continued losing support across the whole voting-age population, according to survey results published on pollster Median s website on Wednesday.

Budapest, September 21 (MTI) - The ruling Fidesz party has retained its massive lead among decided voters, though it has continued losing support across the whole voting-age population, according to survey results published on pollster Median s website on Wednesday.

The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democratic party alliance would garner 51 percent of the votes if general elections were held this weekend, while 20 percent would vote on the opposition Socialist Party, Median said.

 

Across the whole sample, however, only 31 percent of respondents voiced their preference for Fidesz, marking the poorest results for the party in the past six years, the pollster said.

 

Within the latter category, Fidesz has lost 19 percentage points since the general election last year, which Median commented as a "serious sign of disappointment". The pollster added that low readiness to turn out at the polls - 40 percent in September - was another sign of the current voter mood. "Similar passivity has not been measured since 1991," the report said.

 

Support for the radical nationalist Jobbik among all voters has increased to 12 percent, level with the Socialists, and both parties enjoy 20 percent support from decided voters. "Jobbik has benefited from growing dissatisfaction, while the Socialists are still paralysed," said the report.

 

Green opposition LMP has also improved its positions, with 6 percent support in the whole sample and 9 percent among decided voters.

 

Prime Minister Viktor Orban s popularity has reached a "historic low" of 38 percent, but he is still the most popular figure of Hungary s political elite, the report said.
