Nezopont: Fidesz-KDNP increases lead

The Fidesz-Christian Democrats (KDNP) coalition increased its lead over the opposition in April, with 40 percent of voters supporting the ruling parties, daily Magyar Nemzet said on Monday.

According to a representative survey conducted by the Nezopont Institute last week, 34 percent of Hungarian voters support the opposition parties, the paper said.

Since March, the ruling parties have gained two percentage points, while the opposition lost three, their lowest rating yet since they announced to run together at the 2022 elections, Nezopont said.

The popularity of the ruling parties is likely thanks to the successful coronavirus inoculation campaign, Nezopont said. That is also mirrored in the popularity of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, with 58 percent of respondents saying they were satisfied with his work. Only 35 percent are critical of the prime minister, Nezopont said.

Fully 51 percent of decided voters would vote for the ruling parties if the elections were held this Sunday, Nezopont said. The support of opposition parties stands at 43 percent. Of that demographic, 6 percent said to be dissatisfied with the government’s work, the pollster said.

Nezopont conducted the survey between April 27-28, on a 1,000-strong sample representative of Hungarians above the age of 18.
