Final poll of polls shows support for the VVD is slipping slightly


Support for prime minister Mark Rutte’s right-wing VVD has slipped slightly in the latest poll of polls, but still remains far ahead of all the other parties.

The VVD is still on target to get more seats in parliament than the 33 it scored in the 2017 general election, and could win up to 38, the poll of polls shows.

The second biggest party remains the far right PVV, which is expected to pick up between 17 and 21 seats, or around 13% of the vote. Geert Wilders’ populist party currently has 20.

The Christian Democrats and D66, both part of the current coalition, are tipped to take up to 18 seats, or around 12% support. They both have 19 seats in the outgoing 150-seat lower house of parliament.
