The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democratic alliance has maintained its massive lead among voters, while 50 percent of respondents in a recent poll conducted by pollster Tárki said they could not choose a party or would not disclose their preferences.
In a report Tárki said that Fidesz and its ally enjoyed a 23 percent support among all respondents (1 percentage point down from September) and 46 percent among decided voters (4 points down).
Support for the opposition Socialist party has remained virtually unchanged: it rose one percentage point to 11 percent across the whole sample and from 21 percent to 22 percent in the decided group.
Ten percent of the whole population and 20 percent of decided voters voiced preferences for the radical nationalist Jobbik party – the ratios having remained virtually unchanged from September.
The green opposition LMP enjoys support from 5 percent of the whole sample (2 points up) and would garner 10 percent of the votes from decided voters (3 points up) if an election were to be held this weekend.
The survey was conducted on a representative sample of 1,000 voting-age adults from October 13 to 18.
