Marki-Zay ‘less popular’ than left wing

Peter Marki-Zay's, the opposition alliance's prime ministerial candidate, is less popular than the left wing, according to a Nezopont poll.

Of the 42 percent of left-wing decided voters, only 24 percent back the mayor of Hodmezovasarhely, Nezopont said.

Neither has Marki-Zay managed to add prospective voters to the opposition camp’s base, the think-tank added.

Nezopont insisted that a month after Marki-Zay won the opposition primary, he has not made a national breakthrough in popularity.

Fully 56 percent of committed voters back the ruling Fidesz party, while 42 percent support the left wing, Nezopont said.

Far from everyone in the camp of voters critical of the government accepts Marki-Zay, the pollster added, with only 24 percent of active voters finding him prime ministerial material, and only 58 percent of left-wing voters backing Marki-Zay as a potential prime minister.

Nezopont’s representative poll of 1,000 adults was conducted by phone from Nov. 8 to 10.
