Shock poll puts eurosceptics in LEAD in Italy AND Sweden spelling nightmare for EU

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator

ITALY’S main eurosceptic party has soared to a six point poll lead as Sweden’s populists gained ground in the aftermath of the terror attack on Stockholm.

The anti-euro Five Star Movement (M5S) rocketed to 31.5 per cent of the vote in a recent poll, pulling well ahead of the ruling socialists who are languishing on 25 per cent. 

At the same time the nationalist Sweden Democrats, who have pledged to hold a Swexit referendum, saw their lead extend to four per cent in the first survey to be carried out since the horror attack in the country’s capital. 

The latest results indicate that the populist uprising gripping some of Europe’s biggest countries shows little sign of abating, with both Italy and Sweden due to hold elections next year. 

They come at a difficult time for the European Union, which is facing a nerve-wracking contest in France which is being shaken up by anti-EU contenders Marine Le Pen and Jean-Luc Melenchon.
