Tarlós had the support of 71% of Budapest respondents, according to the poll Nézőpont conducted this month for daily Magyar Nemzet. If challenged by Gergely Karácsony, the joint Socialist-Párbeszéd candidate, Tarlós would win the ballot 50:36.
Should Olga Kálmán, a television personality backed by the Democratic Coalition, come out as a winner of the opposition’s ongoing preselection process for fielding a candidate against Tarlós in the autumn municipal elections, the incumbent mayor would defeat her 48:38.
Tarlós, serving as mayor since 2010, would defeat Momentum Movement’s Gábor Kerpel-Fronius 54:22 and independent Róbert Puzsér 55:18, the poll showed.
According to the poll, 62% of Budapest respondents see Tarlós fit to serve as mayor, as against 35% saying the same about Karácsony and 31% holding this view about Kálmán.
Nézőpont conducted the poll by asking 1,000 voting age adults by phone between June 14 and 19.
