Ipsos poll: Fidesz support stagnate, Jobbik is runner-up

Support for Hungary’s political parties remained around the same levels in the past month, with governing Fidesz in the lead with 21% support, unchanged for the third month in a row, the pollster Ipsos said. The radical nationalist Jobbik party had 17% of support in March, down from 18% in February. Support for the opposition Socialists dropped from 12% in February to 11% in March in the whole sample, the poll said. The opposition LMP party picked up 5% of support in March, its highest level so far during the current government. The Democratic Coalition stood on 3%, down from 4%, and Együtt had 1%. Among voters committed to a party, Fidesz led 38% to 27% against Jobbik, followed by 17% for the Socialists. LMP had 7%, DK 6% and Együtt 2% in this voter group, Ipsos said.

In a breakdown of voter support, Ipsos said Fidesz had 1.4 million core supporters and an additional 300,000 voters who were more loosely affiliated with the party. Fidesz’s most committed voters are in the villages and in Budapest and in the older age groups, the poll said.Jobbik’s core camp numbers 800,000, and the typical Jobbik voter is a man
aged 40-50 who lives outside Budapest. Another 600,000 people are less firmly devoted to the party; they are mainly from lower social groups from Budapest.The Socialists have 650,000 core supporters and 250,000 potential supporters. The core supporter is in the 50 plus age group and lives in Budapest, Ipsos said.

    So, Socialists and DK together cannot gather as much support as Jobbik. Goes to show you neo-liberal fanatics that the strategy of attacking Hungary in order to discredit the current government backfired. Aside from a core of fanatic supporters who would destroy their own country only to destroy their political opposition, most Hungarians cannot stand the scumbags. They would rather vote Jobbik or not at all, even if disenchanted with the current government.

    Jobbik has shown in the past five years that an effective opposition can be made without attacking Hungary and its interests in the process. They are being rewarded as a result.

      “Jobbik has shown in the past five years that an effective opposition can be made”

      Effective in what way?

      What “Jobbik” has done is to tone down its outragous rethoric and is sounding/looking more like Fidesz, which hardly should be mixed up with performing “an effective opposition”

      • Dave

        Jobbik have shown that by addressing substantive issues that people are concerned about they can gain support, even if they are charlatans.

        The neoliberals have provided a text book lesson of how to alienate voters. All they have is this constant whinging about Orban. They never talk about anything else. Orban, Orban, Orban!

        The so-called left have been a huge let down to Hungary, allowing Jobbik to take over a large part of its voter base through their sheer ineptitude.

        Where is the left wing defense against the fat right? I’ve never encountered such a bunch of pathetic people in my life.

        • MagyarViking

          “They never talk about anything else. Orban, Orban, Orban!”

          No, the ‘left’ talk about “Jobbik” also and “Jobbik” does the same, ‘never talk about anything else. Orban, Orban, Orban!’ and of the ‘left’ of course, so what is your point, except that you love ‘Jobbik’ and hate the ‘left’

          That is the thing with “Jobbik” nowadays, only talk about how Fidesz is stealing and the ‘left’ is bad, very small about ‘gypsycrime’ and ‘jews-drinking-the-blood-of-magyar-children’
          You are sure you do not miss that part, or you get it at home in the US from other sources?

      • FUCeausescu

        Effective by criticizing government policies to the point, and offering alternative views, instead of the constant hysteria and outrageous charges against the current government, which is the only thing that the left has been offering for the past five years.

        • Dave

          “Constant hysteria and outrageous charges” – that’s and excellent way to put it.

        • MagyarViking

          “Effective by criticizing government policies to the point, and offering alternative views”

          Yes, Vona making the Nazi salute…

          • Attila

            He’s literally waving.

          • MagyarViking

            You have not checked Russia Today obviously…

  • Daniel

    Hungarians are just naturally repulsed by liberal bullshit. It takes a shit load of Hollywood brainwashing in order to get the Hungarian youth to sympathize with Marxism, and luckily nobody watches Hollywood or even tv anymore, not the young generation anyway.
    Also, It truly is amazing how the Hungarian people were able to completely obliterate the left in 2006. I can think of no other country where the people can wield such energy.
    God bless the Hungarians, and good riddance liberal left.

    • National Hiphop

      Are you a government-paid blogger or some Századvég smartass by any chance?

      • Hungarian

        That’s a question for you Ferenghi kibbutz dweller 🙂

    • Hungarian

      Yep, we can be proud to be Hungarians 🙂

      • gavroche

        hungarians and japonese.

        • Hungarian

          Gavroach the cockroach ?
          Trying to make a name for yourself? 🙂
          I eat you for breakfast loonie toon 🙂

          • gavroche

            good appetite. please take care not to have an upset stomach.

  • Albion

    These numbers indicate that all the major parties draw their support from the older generation or “lower social groups” ie thicko’s aka Leto/Daniel types. Conclusion being that Hungary’s younger generation are not interested and have left for elsewhere. Says it all really.

    • As opposed to me, you think you belong to “higher social groups”, n’est-ce pas, you disgusting English libnazi slimeball? 😀

      • Albion

        You are an ignorant bigoted Nazi so of course you belong to lowest of all social groups. In fact your values do not even rank you as a human being.

        • You’re a disgusting, bigoted libnazi and therefore you belong to the lowest of the lowest. In fact I’m not sure you should be regarded as a human being at all.

          • Albion

            Night and day on this site you project hate and scorn on people and groups based on their race, their religion, their colour and their sexual orientation. And you call me a bigot ? Now that is rich !! You really are so pathetic.

          • gavroche

            rinse your mouth

    • Hungarian

      Wrong. Jobbik is most popular in the under 30 generation.
      Behold the future 🙂

      • Albion

        I know your English comprehension skills along with your overall intelligence is very poor, but I would have thought even a thick twat like you would understand when they said the typical Jobbik voter is a man aged 40-50 living outside Budapest. Obviously they would not also mention that he is a fucking moron like you.

        Btw, you never answered my question to your statement that Hungary could be self sufficient. How ?

        • Hungarian

          Wrong asshole.
          Jobbik is most popular in the under 30s department.
          So get ready for changes.
          And I have already explained how Hungary can be self sufficient you senile English teacher.
          Just as it was for thousands of years!

          • gavroche

            hungary has been self sufficient for thousands of years?

            have you taken history classes in japan?

          • Hungarian

            I did while you cockroaches were busy enlarging your kibbutz 🙂

          • gavroche

            try to be witty. and please tell me where is that cockroach kibbutz?

          • Albion

            That’s not what the Ipsos poll said you wanker. Maybe you need to learn to read.

            Sorry I must have missed your plan for self sufficiency. Care to repeat it please ?

            If Hungary elects a jobbik government then you are not wrong in that there will be changes.. But none for the better that is for sure.

          • Hungarian

            Check your polls Albino … Jobbik support is mostly with young fresh minds.
            Take yours to rehab…

          • Albion

            Once again, the Ipsos poll begs to differ. There is nothing “young and fresh” about the politics of Jobbik. Tired old Nazi doctrine being played out by a bunch of narrow minded losers whose politics of hate and discrimination has got no place in the world today.
            Any chance of your self sufficiency manifesto sometime soon ? It would be interesting to discover what planet you are on.

          • Hungarian

            Check some older news right here on politics.jews albino. It clearly states jobbik leads in under 30s 🙂

          • Albion

            Ah “older news”…not “current news” like the Ipsos Poll then. See you are still on the old anti jew, anti black tack. .shit you are so boring.
            And the self sufficiency manifesto ? You have not got one have you. What a dick you are to state that Hungary, which does not have any natural resources, could be self sufficient. Of course Hungary will have to exist without EU handouts if your Jobbik nutjobs get elected, that’s for sure.

          • Hungarian

            Lol! Why are ya wasting my time on anti what list?
            Why do we need Jews or negros on the first place anyway?
            Not to mention the Roma?
            Hungary is a country for hungarians isn’t it?
            What the fuck are ya trying to make it a nest for all the garbage of the world?

          • Albion

            I think you will find that millions of people in those groups have contributed far more to humanity that a worthless racist piece of shit like you could even hope for. Yes, Hungary is a country for Hungarians, fortunately, most of whom do not have any time for bigots like you. Fuck you are so ignorant it is beyond belief..
            And where is your self sufficiency manifesto ? Have not got one have you.

          • Hungarian

            So you agree that Hungary is a country for Hungarians 🙂 ?
            Call me racists whatever but my identity is not for sale 🙂
            I bet you are just another colored frustrated commenter from the outer edges of the society who has no roots in my culture 🙂
            Take home my advice.
            This is my country and, my identity is not for sale!

          • Albion

            But I thought you were betting that I was a washed up English teacher..Before that a Jew, now Im coloured. Bottom line is that I am non of these, just someone capable of judging people by what they do and not what race, religion or sexual orientation they are. That you do, marks you down as an ignorant bigot stewing in your own hatred. Poor you.
            “Your identity is not for sale” Do you really think you would find any buyers ?
            Self sufficiency manifesto ? I guess by now you are realizing that this, along with everything else you have to say was extremely dumb.

          • Hungarian

            It has nothing to do with hatred colored Ethiopian Jew making the living as an English teacher 🙂
            It’s about preserving my identity to which I have right 🙂

            Right that you peripheral garbage try to revoke through clever multicultural trickery and media.

            Bad bad bad!

          • Albion

            I agree that your particular “cultural (surely a contradiction of terminology) identity” should be preserved. In a black museum to illustrate how bad things were in 1930’s Europe.
            I will admit your description of me is getting more and more entertaining. There must be a few other groups that you could include as well.

          • gavroche

            preserve your identity. you are not multicultural. you are not even unicultural

          • gavroche

            who wants to buy your identity?
