Just 34 percent of respondents to a recent poll by Ipsos said they would cast their ballots if general elections were held this weekend.
The survey, released on Friday, indicated 33 percent support for the ruling Fidesz party and 30 percent for the main opposition Socialists among decided voters.
In the same group, radical nationalist Jobbik would garner 22 percent of the votes, small opposition LMP would get 8 percent and leftist group Democratic Coalition would be just one percent below the parliamentary threshold of 5 percent.
Tibor Zavecz, Ipsos’ head of research, cautioned that the low potential participation rate meant that, “we must be careful in drawing conclusions”.
He added that across the whole sample, Fidesz was supported by 16 percent and the Socialists by 14 percent, each one percent down from last month. Jobbik is favoured by 10 percent, LMP by 4 percent, and the Democratic Coalition by two percent.
Fifty-one percent of the respondents rejected all political parties.
The poll was conducted between July 11 and 18, with a sample of 1,500 voting-age adults.
