Fortuyn voters back Verdonk, Wilders

People who used to support the right-wing murdered politician Pim Fortuyn would now vote for Rita Verdonk’s nationalist party TON or Geert Wilders’ anti-immigration PVV, according to a Maurice de Hond poll.

Some 50% of TON and 75% of PVV supporters voted for Fortuyn in 2002, the poll shows.
Fortuyn was killed by an animal rights activist six years ago yesterday, just before a general election.
