By Tamás Székely // 2015.07.02.

Among all voting Hungarians, the ruling parties received 30% support in June as against 27% in May, according to a poll conducted by Nézőpont as part of a survey on migration. Support for the radical nationalist Jobbik party dropped from 16% in May to 14% in June. The Socialists had 8% support in the whole sample, up from 7% in May. DK stood on 6%, unchanged from the previous month, and Együtt and PM each had 1% of support. LMP lost 2 points from May, standing at 4%. Fully 33% said they would not vote or declined to respond.

Among decided voters who are sure to vote and know which party they support, the ruling Fidesz-KDNP had 41%, Jobbik 26%, the Socialists 12%, DK 11%, LMP 5%, Együtt 2%, and the PM and the Liberals 1% each. Nézőpont said that since the rejection of illegal migration has become a topic across all party preferences, this may have been the reason why the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats “have regained their popularity”. The phone survey was carried out on June 19-25 with a sample of 1,000.
