Wilders has little support in Amsterdam

4 February 2009 – If municipal elections were now to be held and Geert Wilders’ PVV would participate, the party would get 3.1% of the Amsterdam vote. D66 and GroenLinks would win, while PvdA, VVD and SP would lose. Amsterdam Anders / De Groenen might return to the city council.

This is the outcome of a poll carried out by O+S for TV station AT5. According to the poll, GroenLinks would become the second largest party of the city. Despite a considerable loss, the PvdA would easily remain the largest party.

In 2006, Amsterdam Anders / De Groenen got 2% of the vote, five votes short off gaining a seat on the city council. According to the present poll, the party might return to the council.

In the 2006 national election, Geert Wilders’ PVV got 4.5% of the Amsterdam vote; its voters live primarily in Noord and New West. According to the present poll, the party would get just over three percent of the vote. Rita Verdonk’s TON would get just over one and a half percent. Her party did not yet participate in 2006.
