New poll by Ipsos: Jobbik is catching up with Fidesz in popular support

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

According to a new poll by Ipsos, Fidesz party support slipped from 23% in January to 21% in February among the voting age population.

Jobbik party support on the other hand shows gradual increase; the party support currently 16%, which is a 2% higher than it was in the previous month.

The atlanticist opposition that openly represents foreign interests in Hungary once again couldn't take advantage of the declining Fidesz support.

The Socialist party, which is the largest globalist party in the country garnered 11% support in February, which is unchanged from the previous month. The support of the other western sponsored fringe parties are still below the five percent threshold limit necessary to win a seat in the national assembly.

Among decided voters, Fidesz support is 40%, followed by Jobbik with 25% and the Socialist party with 19% support.

According to the poll, Jobbik party support among young people (under 30), skilled workers, and the unemployed is already ahead of Fidesz. The poll emphasized that this was the first time ever that Jobbik outstripped Fidesz among voters in the age groups under 30.
