In this spatial statistical analysis, Hungary, though a small country in size (smaller than most states in the USA), is shown as having significant spatial clustering. On the basis of this spatial clustering, it is demonstrated that a political party, FIDESZ that had previously been associated with a different political bloc has been able, in a relatively short period of time of the 1990s in the post-Communist period, to occupy the vacant space on the 'right' and to integrate with the voters of the right-wing bloc.
