The poll has been conducted amongst students at the RUG by the UKrant
The progressive liberal party D66, the new European-oriented party VOLT and environmentally-aware party GroenLinks are the most popular vote choices for students of the University of Groningen.
This is evident from a polling by the University Newspaper (Ukrant), reports the GIC. A total of 1,249 people took part in the poll.
GroenLinks obtained the most votes among the respondents: 20.7 percent. D66 came in second with 16.8 percent.
Newcomer VOLT, the European-oriented party, received fourteen percent of the poll votes, putting it in third.
Amongst some students, populist and rabble-rouser Thierry Baudet is also quite popular: he obtained 8.6% of the vote, good for a fourth place, narrowly ahead of the VVD, which got 8.3 percent of the vote (although you have to wonder what the proportions for parent’s votes were).
Incidentally, this result is quite in line with previous election results: D66 and GroenLinks have been the largest parties in Groningen for several years. But the result of VOLT is remarkable, but that also fits the national picture for this party that could get one or more seats in the House of Representatives for the first time, according to various national polls.
