Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In Fidesz's case, I wouldn't call getting 27% of the total voting-age population "massively popular". Fidesz lost the 2002 and 2006 elections with more, hence the distinction between relative and absolute popularity.
To what extent has Fidesz been helped by gerrymandering or changes in electoral procedures?
