New Survey: 51% of Hungarians Would Welcome Trump Win
Fully 51% of all respondents in a recent survey by Real-PR 93 said they thought Hungary would benefit if Donald Trump won the November US presidential election, the pollster said in a statement.

Among right-wing supporters, 78% said they would welcome a Trump victory, while 26% of leftist respondents shared that opinion.

Twenty-three percent of all respondents said Hungary would benefit from Joe Biden’s re-election.

Real-PR 93 has gauged Hungarian voters’ support for Trump for the second time, the first one conducted in October-November last year.

The first survey indicated 47% support for Trump, the report said, adding that the ratio could further increase in future.

The pollster said support for Trump was higher among older respondents, with 47% in the 18-39 age group, 49% among the middle-aged and 58% among people over 60.

The survey was conducted by phone with a sample of 1,000 adults between Feb 26 and 28.

Szijjártó: Liberal Mainstream Fails to Disqualify Trump From Presidential Race

The “liberal mainstream’s master plan” in the United States to disqualify Donald Trump from the presidential race “has failed”, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said at a press conference on a different subject.

Answering a question in connection with the US presidential election and the US Supreme Court’s decision clearing Trump to run for president, Szijjártó welcomed “the failure of the liberal mainstream’s master plan” to disqualify a non-liberal candidate with a good chance to win and that the Democrats will have to compete against Trump “in a democratic race”.

“This is a very important victory from the point of view of the rule of law,” Szijjártó said, adding that it was regrettable that no statements had been made by Brussels this time on “how it was a violation of the rule of law and European values — which we regard as universal values — that a decision on who can or cannot run as a candidate in the primaries, or in the presidential election, could have been taken by an official in a certain American state”.

“But this is their business … what is certain is that we have always respected decisions made by the people of other countries concerning who they elect for leaders, including in the United States,” Szijjártó said.

The minister said Hungary’s bilateral relations had been at their peak during the presidency of Donald Trump, adding that Hungary would again like to have “the best ever” political relations with the United States.
