Rita Verdonk’s brand new politicial movement Trots op Nederland (proud of the Netherlands) would take 23 seats if there was a general election tomorrow, according to the latest Maurice de Hond opinion poll.
Only the Christian Democrats would have more seats – a total of 34. The CDA currently has 41.
While Geert Wilders’ anti-immigration PVV would take 12 seats (it currently has nine) its support has halved since Verdonk set up ToN, the poll shows.
