Populist Leaders In Europe Continue To Surge In Polls; Le Pen Overtakes Macron

Parties in Italy, France, and Hungary crushed rivals going into next year’s EU election

The massive surge in the Populist movement across Europe is undeniable as a wave of anti-mass migration nationalist parties continues to gain momentum.

Parties in Italy, France, and Hungary have crushed their rivals going into next year’s EU parliament election.

Last week, a poll from Nov. 4 from the Institut Français D’opinion Publique (IFOP) revealed French President Emmanuel Macron’s centrist party Republic on the Move (LREM) plummeted to 19%, while Marine Le Pen’s right-wing Rassemblement National (RN, formerly National Front) soared to 21%, according to Euractiv.

In another poll from Elabe shows RN at 20% while Macron’s LREM at 19.5%.

According to ZH: Meanwhile, a Hungarian national poll released last week from Medián reveals that Prime Minister Victor Orbán’s Fidesz party and their Christian Democratic People’s Party allies have increased their lead to 63% – with the second most popular party, Jobbik, coming in at just 11%.

According to Breitbart’s Chris Tomlinson, Italy’s League – which Interior Minister Matteo Salvini leads, has continued to outperform its coalition partners, the Five Star Movement, since July.

Salvini has been shown to be the most trusted politician in Italy according to a poll from the Giorno newspaper released in July.

The Five Star Movement and its leader Luigi Di Maio, meanwhile, have struggled to implement their economic reforms which include a basic citizen income due to pushback from the European Commission. -Breitbart

According to pollster Noto, the League leads with 31%, while Five Star comes in at 27%.

While American political strategist Stephen K Bannon has made strides uniting European populists through his nonprofit organization

The Movement, Salvini and Le Pen met last month in Rome and announced that they were exploring a “Freedom Front” of their own to unite the populists among the EU parliament.

Meanwhile, according to Tomlinson, calls to boot Orbán and Fidesz from the conservative European People’s Party (EPP) parliamentary group may result in a solid alliance between Orbán, Salvini and Le Pen.
