The final poll of polls in this parliamentary year shows no major shifts in support, despite the looming general election.

The anti-Islam PVV remains the biggest party, with support of 18.6% to 21.3% while the right-wing VVD remains in second place with 16.7% to 19.3%.

Support for the PVV has dropped several percentage points since the party’s January high. However, support for the VVD has only risen by one parliamentary seat (around 0.7 percentage point) over the past three months, poll compiler Tom Louwerse told broadcaster NOS. ‘This is no reason for the party to be pleased with its performance,’ he said.

The poll puts the Liberal Democrats and Socialists both on 14 to 18 seats in the 150 seat parliament, with the Christian Democrats on 15 to 17 and Labour and GroenLinks on 11 to 13.

The poll of polls is an amalgam of five different opinion polls.
