Geert Wilders’ PVV stretches lead in latest poll of polls

The anti-immigration PVV has stretched its lead over the right-wing Liberal VVD in the latest poll of polls, with three months to go before the general election, broadcaster NOS reported.

The poll of polls is an amalgam of five separate opinion polls and shows Geert Wilders’ party would take 31-37 seats in the 150 seat parliament if there was a general election tomorrow.

That means the anti-Islam campaigner has the support of between 20% and 25% of the electorate. Support for the ruling VVD has fallen to between 15% and 17.5%, the new poll of polls shows. Backing for the Socialist Party and the Christian Democrats has also fallen slightly as the PVV gathers votes. [DutchNews] Read more
