Fifty-one percent of respondents said in a recent poll conducted in Budapest that they were satisfied with István Tarlós, the city’s incumbent mayor, Nézőpont Institute said on Monday.
According to the poll, conducted on a sample of 500 last week, 46 percent of the votes would go to Tarlós while Gergely Karácsony, candidate of the opposition Socialists-Párbeszéd, would garner 38 percent if the municipal elections were held on the weekend.
