Geert Wilders' anti-Islam party PVV is still gaining popularity in the polls. In Maurice de Hond's latest poll the PVV gained one seat over the past weeks, and 7 seats over the past four weeks. The anti-Islam party is now 10 seats ahead of ruling party VVD.
Over the past month the VVD, CDA, SP, D66, GroenLinks and PvdA all saw a decline in virtual seats, losing 9 all together. Together they now have just 87 seats. In 1998 the six parties scored more than 140 seats, according to De Hond.
