Half of Hungarians want a change in government, but all hope appears lost in 2018

While a Publicus poll out this Sunday found that 54% of Hungarians want to bring an end to Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s rule, the dysfunctional and splintered opposition is further from achieving a change in government than ever before in the last seven years.

Medián poll has Fidesz at 61% support

Viktor Orbán’s main concern in April 2018 may not be whether or not he wins a two-thirds majority in parliament, but rather if he can avoid the bad optics of having a veritable one party legislature after next year’s national elections.

Hungary’s left-centre opposition is in shambles 9 months before elections

Some of the smaller “new left”-style parties are planning a joint, mass protest for August 20th, Hungary’s national holiday, in support of investigative journalists who will become official targets of the Orbán government’s vitriol in the coming months.

According to the Republikon poll released this week, Fidesz has dropped by 6% in the last […]
