Nezopont: Fidesz maintains lead

Ruling Fidesz has maintained its lead over the opposition parties over the summer, while its support fell by 7 percentage points to 47 percent, the website said on Monday, citing a poll by the Nezopont Institute.

Support for the opposition fell to “around 32 percent, even considering uncertain voters who might support a joint opposition list,” Nezopont said.

Meanwhile, fully 11 percent of voters said they were undecided concerning who they would be voting for. It seems “those leaving Fidesz have become undecided rather opposition supporters,” Nezopont said.

The opposition Democratic Coalition (DK), Socialist, LMP, Jobbik, Parbeszed and Momentum parties which set up a joint list in the April parliamentary election, had a 16 percent support at the end of August, down from 17 percent in July, Nezopont said. DK and Mi Hazank were the only parties to increase their support by 1 percentage point to six percent, respectively, the pollster said.
