  •  Patriotic parties dominate EU election polls
    Posted: 13 May 2019 03:48 AM PDT -- In Britain is it Nigel Farage's Brexit Party. In France it is Marine LePen's National Rally party. It Italy it is Matteo Salvini's League party. All are leading in recent polls.

    It seems that patriotic parties are set to dominate the 2019 European Union Parliament elections scheduled to be held between 23 and 26 May 2019.

    Marine Le Pen’s National Rally is topping the polls, ahead of French President Emmanuel Macron’s party, less than three weeks away from European Parliament elections.

    An Ipsos poll released Sunday places Ms Le Pen’s populist-right party on 22 per cent, ahead of Mr Macron’s progressive La République En Marche! (LREM/Republic on the Move) which is at 21.5 per cent. In third place is the right-establishment Republicans at a distant 13.5 per cent.

    Two other recent polls also put Ms Le Pen’s party in the lead: an Ifop-Fiducial survey published Friday puts National Rally on 23 per cent, LREM on 21.5 per cent; and an OpinionWay poll published Thursday puts the populists on 24 per cent followed by Macron’s party on 21 per cent.

    Populist, patriotic parties are expected to make major gains in the EU-wide parliamentary elections between May 23rd and 26th.

    The UK’s Brexit Party has been holding first place for a number of weeks and is maintaining a comfortable lead, the latest YouGov poll placing the Nigel Farage-founded party at 30 per cent, followed by Labour at 21 per cent, and the Tory Party at 13 per cent.

    While in Italy, populist deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini has found his right-wing League party topping the Index Research poll, published last week, at 32.8 per cent. The League’s anti-establishment governing coalition partner the Five Star Movement (M5S) is at 22 per cent, and the left-wing Democratic Party is in third with 20.5 per cent.
