Freedom Party suffers in the polls

Freedom Party suffers from a lack of attention

According to the Barometer the Freedom Party (PVV) is experiencing a drop (Dutch) in its political popularity. Barometer is a poll run by Nova, a government subsidized news and commentary program.

According to Nova, the PVV dropped 4 seats out of a 150 in the month July. The interpretation is that the party which communicates with its voter base mostly through the media. This is because it lacks affiliated newspapers, or a church like most of the other parties. When it is summer there is a dearth of news, hence the drop.

It is the first time that the PVV is dropping in the polls, since the party was founded.
