The Hungarian population supports measures that aim to roll back the shadow economy, therefore the Hungarian people are content with the extension of electronic financial transactions (88 percent are satisfied with the use of bank cards), as they also embrace the use of online cash registers (four times more consider it more efficient than not) and the introduction of EKÁER (three times more people consider it more useful than not) – indicates a poll completed through the Economic Transparency Roundtable organized by Nézőpont Intézet. Based on this survey, it is also apparent that there are still improvements that could be made in terms of the effectiveness of the battle against the grey economy.
The domestic population supports and understands the government measures launched against the grey and black economies, however, it does not think that the necessary infrastructure to implement such measures is adequate in all areas, denotes a recent public opinion poll completed by Nézőpont Intézet’s Economic Transparency Roundtable.
The continued application of gratutity-based services in the Hungarian health care system are hinged more on adverse causes, such as gaining some type of advantage, duress or simple expectation; gratitude (as the Hungarian word implies) has only a limited role – according to Nézőpont Intézet’s Economic Transparency Roundtable public opinion poll, noting that the majority of people decidedly oppose the use of the state infrastructure in the private practice of medical doctors.
Hungarians reject shortchanging the state by a three-fourth majority, yet nearly two-thirds of them consider it routine to practice tax avoidance in the economy – points out the Economic Transparency Roundtable of Nézőpont Intézet. Of those polled consider cash-based industries as the most vulnerable sectors of the grey economy, such as the construction industry and health care.
A decisive majority, three-fourth of respondents do not concur with the notion that shortchanging the state would be an acceptable act. On the other hand, the ratio of those (24 percent) who take away from the state budget and/or do not contribute to it in a fair manner do not amount to any particular wrongdoing.
According to Nézőpont Intézet’s recent public opinion poll, the government parties are now recorded at 31 percent, an increase of 3 percentage points compared to June –as Nézőpont Intézet’s most recent public opinion poll confirms at the request of Heti Válasz.This is doubtless related to the increasingly evident connection between immigration and terrorism, which proves Prime Minister Viktor Orbán right.
Jobbik has receded by 1 percentage point and stands at 12 percent. It can be reiterated that the combined support of the leftist parties (MSZP, DK, Együtt, PM) is higher at 17 percent than Gábor Vona’s party.
The contest within the Left has benefited MSZP somewhat in June. While the socialists were able to garner 2 percent more support in June, accounting for 10 percent of the total adult population, Ferenc Gyurcsány has lost support by the same margin. DK’s base is now at 5 percent. All this can be attributed to the one-time effect of MSZP’s leadership change, since the combined support of leftist parties has not changed.
LMP’s support is now at 5 percent, while Együtt and PM continue to hibernate at 1 percent each, respectively.
Looking at the most likely mandate results, Fidesz-KDNP would secure 44 percent, Jobbik 21 percent, while MSZP 12, DK 8, LMP 7, Együtt 2 and PM 1 percent, respectively.
Although Gábor Vona often alludes to the myth that Jobbik will be Fidesz-KDNP’s primary challenger in 2018, within the total adult population the total sum of leftist voters still outnumber those of Jobbik – as Nézőpont Intézet’s most recent public opinion poll confirms at the request of Heti Válasz.
Regarding support levels of the parties within the total adult population there are no major changes compared to the previous month that would exceed the margin of error. After the leadership renewal elections of Jobbik and MSZP Fidesz-KDNP retains 28 percent, Jobbik has 13, the MSZP 8, DK 7, LMP 4, while Együtt and PM have 1 percent each, respectively. This means that the combined 17 percent support for parties of the the previous leftist coalition (MSZP, DK, Együtt, PM) continues to surpass the support level recorded for Jobbik.
Looking at the most likely party list votes along mandates Fidesz-KDNP would secure 40 mandates, Jobbik may gain 24, the MSZP could have 11, DK 10, LMP 7 and Együtt 2, while support for PM is around 1 percent. Based on this poll, the Jobbik-Left duel is relatively even, attributable primarily to the extraordinarily passive disposition of leftist symphatizers.
