Gyurcsany's DK becomes strongest party on the left

In November, the ruling parties' popularity increased further, while the strongest opposition party, the radical Jobbik, suffered significant losses. Meanwhile, former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany's Democratic Coalition (DK) party's public support passed the Socialists' (MSZP) according the latest poll made by IDEA Institute and reported by ATV.

DK has passed MSZP in November 2017. Gyurcsany's party is supported by 7 percent of the whole popultion and 11% among the commited voters. The latter is 10% for the Socialists while they have 6% in the whole population.
Jobbik is the biggest loser of the past month. Compared to October when it was at 13% in the whole paopulation, it declined to 11% in November, while its popularity decreased as well among the decided voters from 18% in October to 15% in November.
The ruling Fidesz-KDNP alliance has increased its popularity from October's 29% to 33% in November.This means that Viktor Orban's governing party could get a two third majority again with the 42% of the votes (an increase of 5 percentage point from October's figures among decided voters).
The small LMP is supported by 5% within the whole electorate and 7% among decided voters (down from 8% in October). 26% of the whole population would not go to vote.
