Nezopont: Fidesz could garner up to 50 percent of the vote

A month ahead of the European parliamentary elections, the list of the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats (KDNP) alliance would garner the support of 48 percent of voters, according to a survey by Nezopont.

The phone poll conducted between April 29 and May 2 with a 1,000-strong sample showed that Peter Magyar’s Tisza party would get 21 percent of the vote, the coalition of the Democratic Coalition, the Socialists and Parbeszed 12 percent, and the Two-tailed Dog party (MKKP) 7 percent, the pollster said.

The radical Mi Hazank party stood at 5 percent, while Momentum and Jobbik both polled at 1 percent, far below the parliamentary threshold, it said.

If the parliamentary elections were held this Sunday, Fidesz-KDNP would get 44 percent of the vote, on par with its performance in 2014, Nezopont said. Support for opposition parties would be similar to that in the EP elections, with 22 percent of voters supporting the Tisza party, 13 percent the DK-Socialists-Parbeszed alliance, 7 percent voting for MKKP, and 6 percent for Mi Hazank, Nezopont said.

LMP and Peter Marki-Zay’s party, the Everybody’s Hungary People’s Party, would only garner 1 percent of the vote each, Nezopont said.
