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 ...

What do we know about uncertain voters before the elections?
The 2022 parliamentary election is expected to be the tightest one of the last more than 10 years. According to opinion polls, just a few weeks prior to the elections, the support for Fidesz-KDNP and Egységben Magyarországért (united opposition) is head-to-head. Due to these results, besides voter mobilization, the role of uncertain voters in el...

How do people vote in Budapest?
Since the Hungarian political transition, the electoral results in the capital and in the countryside have tended to differ, with leftist and liberal parties usually doing better in Budapest than in other parts of the country. That was strongly demonstrated in the last elections. In the analysis below, we show the chances of the governing partie...

Who voted for the opposition in 2022?
The goal of political polls is often to survey the potential voters of a political party. A follow-up on elections, the survey of the voters of a specific party or block in a post-election period is rarer. The Republikon Institute carried out a large sample research during the autumn of 2022 among the people who voted for the opposition-coalitio...

"Compared to the election results, the gap between Fidesz and the opposition bloc has decreased, which is not surprising in a period of recession, although Fidesz's advantage over the parties of the late opposition coalition is still confident"  according to the Telex.hu highlights about our latest polls. The presentation is available here.  - I...

"According to the majority of voters, Hungary's ally is the West, not the East, and 63 percent say that Hungary has an obligation to help Ukraine's neighbors even if this could have negative economic consequences for the country,"  according to the Telex.hu highlights about our latest polls. The presentation is available here.   Methodology: The...

Even if it is not known how the Russian-Ukrainian war changed the balance of power in the domestic politics, ... it seems that there has been little change since January, and competition between Fidesz and Hungary for Unity continues to intensify, " Our latest poll has just come out. The presentation is available here.   Methodology: The researc...

Research on party affiliation January 2022
As opposed to our previous researches, in January we measured the popularity of the party-lists, rather than the popularity of the parties. Our aim was to measure the support of the party-formations, which citizens will be able to vote for in the elections. 41% of the total population would vote for the party-list of Fidesz-KDNP, while 40% would...
