Karacsony's announcement had no effect on PM's favourability
Nezopont: Voters favour Orbán as PM candidate
The survey Nezopont conducted on a weekly basis shows that Karacsony’s support stood at 16 percent after his campaign was launched in mid-May. His support rose to 21 percent at the beginning of June, only to drop to 18 percent by the end of the month.
Meanwhile, Orbán’s support among Hungarian adults continued to hover around 50 percent, with no discernible change due to the mayor’s announcement to run for prime minister, the pollster said.
Among voters critical of the government, Karacsony is supported by 42 percent, while 41 percent said they would not vote for either of the two candidates, Nezopont said.
