The poll of 1,000 voters conducted by phone showed Jobbik and Socialists losing support.
Jobbik had the backing of 9 percent of all voters and 16 percent among decided voters, while the Socialists was on 9 percent and 14 percent, respectively, Századvég said, citing Jobbik’s “current identity crisis” and internal divisions in the case of the Socialists.
The green opposition LMP party may be in a position to capitalise on the woes of the Socialists but its growing popularity which began in the summer of 2017 came to a sudden halt by the end of the year, Századvég said.
LMP received 6 percent support from all voters and 7 percent from decided voters.
The leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) also gained from political infighting on the left and support for the party stabilised thanks to a switch of allegiance by disillusioned Socialist voters in the last months of the year.
DK, led by former prime minister Ferenc Gyurcsány, had the support of 5 percent of all voters and 6 percent of decided voters at the end of the year.
Support for opposition Együtt stood at 1 percent among all voters, as well as among decided voters.
Support for all other parties combined was 5 percent among all voters and 4 percent among decided voters, Századvég said.
