BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Hungary’s government has released a set of questions for an informal survey it will send to voters on a number of divisive issues including migration, LGBTQ+ rights and support for Ukraine.

Such surveys, conducted numerous times by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s right-wing populist government since it took power in 2010, have been widely criticized by pollsters and opposition parties as propaganda tools that are manipulative in their phrasing and highly suggestive of desired answers.
