Drop in Support for Wilders’ Party

The latest poll by Politieke Barometer indicates that support for Geert Wilders’ anti-immigration PVV party has dropped in the last month. Polls suggested last month that the party would take 32 seats in a parliamentary election, a figure which has dropped to 24.

Meanwhile, research by Synovate for television show Nova shows that almost 40% of Wilders’ supporters back the PVV because they have lost faith in the government and other political parties. Just under 20% support Wilders because of his stand on Islam; the party leader has called for a ban on the Koran and an end to Muslim immigration.
