Support for the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democratic alliance dropped only a notch this month, but went down for the main opposition Socialists to below levels of the past ten years, a poll released by Tarki on Wednesday showed.

Among all voters, Fidesz-KDNP’s support was at 24 percent, compared with 26 in February. The Socialists lost ground with their support dropping to 9 percent in this group from 12 percent in the previous month.

Support for the other parliamentary parties in the whole electorate remained virtually unchanged with radical nationalist Jobbik standing at 8 percent, small LMP at 2 percent and the Democratic Coalition (DK) at 1 percent.

The non-parliamentary Together 2014 movement led by ex-premier Gordon Bajnai stabilised its overall support at 6 percent, above the threshold of entering parliament, the poll showed.

Among those with a clear party preference, Fidesz-KDNP’s support remained at 48 percent, while sank in the case of the Socialists from 22 percent to 18. Jobbik in this group stayed level at 16 percent and LMP at 3 percent, while DK gained 2 points to stand at 3 percent. Together 2014 here increased support from 9 to 11 percent.

The proportion of swing or apathetic voters at the same time increased from 46 percent to 51, Tarki said.

Tarki conducted the poll on March 14-18 on a sample of 1,000 voting age adults.

2/3 for Fidesz in 2014 again?

Seems like it.
I guess Jobbik can get a marginal gain too.
