Newcomer Euroskeptic, anti-migrant party jumps to 2nd spot in Dutch polls

The support for the Forum for Democracy (FVD) has increased more than 8 percent since last year’s election in the Netherlands, with the new party that wants an EU membership referendum now sharing second spot in the polls.

The FVD was founded in 2016 and received just 1.8 percent or two parliament seats in the general election last March. However, its popularity has been on the rise since then, according to a fresh survey by Dutch pollster, Peil.nl.
