The ruling Fidesz-Christian Democratic alliance widened its lead ahead of the opposition Socialists in July, a poll released by Tarki to MTI on Wednesday showed.
Among all voters, Fidesz-KDNP’s support has remained unchanged at 18 percent compared with June, while backing for the Socialists dropped two points to 12 percent, Tarki said.
Radical nationalist Jobbik scored 10 percent, down only one point from June. The green LMP party again garnered 5 percent this month, the threshold for parliamentary representation, and the leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) also stayed level, at 2 percent.
Among decided voters, support for Fidesz-KDNP went up to 38 percent from June’s 36 percent, while eased for the Socialists to 25 from 27 percent.
Support for Jobbik, LMP and DK remained unchanged in this category. Jobbik was backed by 22 percent, LMP by 10 percent and DK 3 percent.
Readiness to vote declined to an all-time low in July, with less than half of eligible voters having a party preference and hardly more than a quarter saying that they would turn up for the vote in any case.
The poll was conducted on a sample of 1,000 from July 12 to 17.
