The True Finns Party, a national populist party that’s critical of the European Union, mass migration, and the Islamization of the West, is now the largest party in Finland, a new survey has revealed.
The survey, carried out by the Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat, showed that if an election was held today, the True Finns would garner more than 22.4 percent of the vote, making them the largest party in the country.
Research data shows that the True Finns enjoy widespread support throughout Finland which spans across various population groups and ages. The party does, however, enjoy substantially more support from men than it does women, Susanna Ginman – a lead writer for Hufvudstadsbladet, one of the largest newspapers in Finland – says.
The poll also revealed that the Social Democrats, who won April’s parliamentary elections by a slim majority, slipped to the third most popular party in the country just after the centrist Coalition Party.
