As for the surveys conducted in January, the findings by Tárki have shown the most significant changes, as the researchers identified most of the previously uncertain voters as those that supporting the Fidesz party, hence the approval rating of the governing party came in at 46%. The average of the three main pollsters’ approval ratings shows that the opposition Socialist Party (MSZP) has lost additional voters and now it stands at 7% among eligible voters. The approval rating of far-right nationalist Jobbik party has risen way within the margin of error, and according to the surveys of the last six months, it has been hovering in a range between 10% and 12%.
