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 elections has recently also been a key talking point more and more frequently. In such tense electoral situations, the not quite homogenous group of uncertain voters can really play a key role, therefore, it is worth analysing, what do we know about this electoral group. In the following analysis of Republikon Institute, based on the opinion polls of the last three months as well as the 5000-strong survey of 2021, we examine the voter propensity, demographic characteristics as well as the attitudes toward change of government and government performance among voters without party preference. It is important to note that since 2021 the composition and the opinion of the group of uncertain voters might have changed, therefore, what used to be true regarding this group in 2021, is not necessarily valid for uncertain voters in 2022, thus the data should be interpreted accordingly.
