Title: Right-Wing and Euroskeptic Parties Expected to Gain Seats in Upcoming European Election, POLITICO Poll Analysis Reveals
In a comprehensive polling analysis conducted exclusively by POLITICO, it has been predicted that right-wing and Euroskeptic parties will make significant gains in the upcoming European election. These findings underline a growing trend across the continent, with voters increasingly expressing support for right-leaning political groups.
According to the analysis, the right-wing European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) are set to become the third-largest group in the European Parliament, tied with the centrist Renew party. With an estimated 89 seats, this represents a considerable surge for the ECR, largely driven by the far-right Brothers of Italy from Italy. The Brothers of Italy has gained substantial popularity in recent months, further bolstering the influence of right-wing movements within the European political landscape.
Meanwhile, the far-right Identity and Democracy (ID) group is also expected to make significant gains, securing 77 seats in total. This surge largely stems from the increasing popularity of Germany’s Alternative for Germany (AfD). These trends highlight a significant shift in European politics, suggesting that right-wing and Euroskeptic sentiments are on the rise.
Despite the predicted gains for right-wing parties, the center-right European People’s Party (EPP) is set to remain the largest group in the European Parliament. However, it is projected to experience a loss of 12 seats, bringing its total to 165 seats. The center-left Socialists and Democrats (S&D) are also anticipated to gain two seats, solidifying their position as the second-largest group with 145 seats.
On the other hand, the Greens are expected to face the biggest losses, dropping to 48 seats, while the Left group is projected to gain eight seats, maintaining its position as the smallest group with 45 seats. These results demonstrate the dynamic nature of European politics and the varying fortunes of different political factions.
When it comes to the makeup of the European Parliament, the projections suggest that the traditional grand coalition of the EPP, S&D, and Renew parties will maintain its majority over any potential new right-leaning alliance. This indicates that despite the anticipated gains for right-wing and Euroskeptic parties, they may not pose a significant challenge to the established political order.
Citizens across Europe will cast their votes from June 6-9 next year to elect the 705 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) who will represent them in Brussels. These seat projections have been derived from national voting intention polls and consultations with experts, providing valuable insights into the potential outcome of the upcoming European election.
