According to the latest polls, the populist wave of anti-mass migration nationalist parties across the European Union is picking up steam, particularly in Italy, France and Hungary as pro-nationalism parties lead their rivals going into next year's EU parliament election.
As we reported last week, a recent poll from Nov. 4 from the Institut Français D'opinion Publique (IFOP) showed that French President Emmanuel Macron's centrist party Republic on the Move (LREM) has fallen to 19%, while Marine Le Pen's right-wing Rassemblement National (RN, formerly National Front) jumped to 21%, according to Euractiv.
Another poll from Elabe shows RN at 20% while Macron's LREM at 19.5%.
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%.
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
