According to the results of a recent telephone survey conducted by Nézőpont Intézet, the ruling Fidesz-KDNP alliance enjoys the support of 28 percent of Hungarians, Jobbik 19 percent, Hungarian Socialist Party (MSZP) 10 percent, Democratic Coalition (DK) 6 percent, Together 3 percent and Politics Can Be Different (LMP) 8 percent.

Although support for Fidesz-KDNP remained constant (28 percent versus 29 percent at the end of March), Jobbik, MSZP and LMP each registered gains of 3 percent in April, with the percentage of undecided voters decreasing from 26 percent to 16 percent.

Jobbik continues to register strong gains in the countryside.  On the question of Jobbik possibly coming to power in 2018, 7 percent said it would be very good, 19 percent said it would be rather a good thing than a bad thing, 29 percent said it would be rather a bad thing than a good thing, and 22 percent said it would be very bad.   However, only 13 percent supported the idea of Jobbik chairman Gábor Vona becoming prime minister.

Of those likely to vote, 36 percent said they would for Fidesz-KDNP (a decrease of 8 percent since March), 28 percent for Jobbik, 13 percent for MSZP, 10 percent for DK, 3 percent for Together and 7 percent for LMP.
