Satisfaction with and confidence in public administration
The analysis below examines citizens' satisfaction with the public administration, what improvements they would like to see and which areas they consider to be in need of comprehensive reform. For some questions, we looked at how Hungarian respondents felt about certain issues compared to citizens in other EU Member States. - Respondents in Hung...

Gloomy Prospects
Summary of key results  • Hungarian voters are generally pessimistic about their financial prospects in 2023. Nearly half of respondents expect their financial situation to worsen in 2023. • At the start of of 2021, in the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic, the share of optimists was three times higher than that of pessimists (18% compared to 6%), ...

State of the Hungarian Far-Right after the Election
On April 3rd, what surprised analysts was not simply the two-thirds victory of Fidesz-KDNP, or the weak showing on United for Hungary, but the fact that the Mi Hazánk Movement got into the Parliament. Not many were expecting it. Having received 5,88% of the vote, they gained 6 seats in Parliament, thus – locked head-to-head with Párbeszéd –, the...

The changing face of Parliament
Hungary’s new parliament held its inaugural session on May 2nd, 2022, after the parliamentary elections on April 3rd resulted in an overwhelming two-third victory for Fidesz-KDNP, who took 135 seats in the chamber. United for Hungary (Egységben Magyarországért) took 57, while the Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) Movement gained 6 seats. In moments like ...

Votes of Jobbik in 2022
The surprise of the 2022 parliamentary elections was the large-scale victory of Fidesz and the low mobilization of the opposition. Egységben Magyarországért (united opposition) received nearly 890 000 fewer votes, than did the party-lists of DK, Együtt, Jobbik, LMP, Momentum and MSZP-Párbeszéd all together in 2018. It was rightly assumed during ...

EP voters
Hungarian voters will go to the polls again in a year, on 9 June 2024, when local elections and European Parliament elections will be held simultaneously in Hungary. Many things could change until then, including who will run for office in the election. Although the official campaigning is yet to begin, both the parties and the voters have start...

Republikon’s Party Preference Research in June 2023
  • In June, the support for Fidesz-KDNP decreased for the first time since January. They lost one percentage point among the total population and two percentage points among party voters, currently standing at 33% and 46% support, respectively. Several events in recent times may have influenced the popularity of Fidesz-KDNP, including the wave ...

20 years of Fidesz core voters
 • In our analysis, we looked at core Fidesz voters - electors who still have strong ties to the party between two elections - between 2002 and 2021, based on their social background and cultural characteristics, as well as their political opinions.  • It is important to note that the core group of voters considered in the analysis does not comp...

Political ideologies within the opposition
By the 2022 elections, a tentative bloc formation within the Fidesz opposition had begun, and after the election failure, the opposition cooperation fragmented again. In a previous analysis by Republikon Institute, we showed that opposition voters voted in roughly equal proportions for the opposition coalition as a whole and for the common list ...

Republikon’s Party Preference Research in March 2023
Key results • In March, Fidesz-KDNP was at in 34 percent of the total population and 47 percent among party voters. In this quarter, DK still has 14 percent support among the entire population, and 20 percent of party voters would still vote for it. Momentum was able to strengthen the most in the month, by 2-2 percentage points, to 6 and 8 perce...
