Italy: Matteo Salvini’s League Party Doubles Popularity

Italy’s Lega (League) party has doubled in popularity since its election victory a year ago, according to a nationwide poll Monday.

At the time of national elections on March 4, 2018, fewer than one in five (17 percent) voters said they favored the League over any other party, whereas that figure today has nearly exactly doubled to 33.9 percent, making the League Italy’s favorite party by a significant margin.

In a distant second and third place are the Democratic Party (PD) and the League’s governing partner, the Five Star Movement (M5S), who command allegiance from 21.1 percent and 21 percent of Italians respectively. Monday marked the first time since the elections that the PD has polled higher than M5S, even if they did so by only a tenth of a percentage point.
