Overwhelming Dutch Support For Geert Wilders

According to GeenStijl, the mainstream Dutch opinion poll firms are wrong: there is massive grassroots support for Geert Wilders in the Netherlands. Here’s a translation by our expatriate Dutch correspondent H. Numan:

85% of all Dutch AGAINST prosecution of Wilders

Free Geert!As you can see in our poll on the right hand side of your screen, we also asked the Dutch for their opinion about the prosecution of Geert Wilders. Our results are spectacular.

85% of all Dutch said NO to a prosecution of Geert Wilders. That is substantially different from the results of the establishment pollsters.

According to millennium hoaxer Maurice de Hond of www.peil.nl exactly half of all Dutch would like to see Wilders prosecuted.

According to competitor TNS NIPO that’s even 53% of all NL: TNS NIPO was commissioned by RTL News. Remarkable results. GeenStijl Poll Service, the biggest independent pollster of the country decided to do it all over again. Only we do it the right way.

Simple question: “Should Wilders be prosecuted or not?” with clear answers: yes or no.
- - - - - - - - -
Look and behold: a completely different result than the established *cough* pollsters show you.

You should know that TNS NIPO is up to their elbows in the left-wing program NOVA with www.politiekbarometer.nl. For each poll they look for the right respondents. You ask, they provide.

Competitor Maurice de Hond [expletive]s off twice daily over photos of Els Lucas and Ella Vogelaar, and keeps 150 red-head babe shots on file. Calling that representative. Yeah, sure. We simply don’t trust those pollsters. The respondents are us.


Note from H. Numan: “Difficult to translate colloquial Dutch. I did my best, but you probably want to censor it a bit.” [I did. — BB]

Woohoo! That's some good news to start the day! Hopefully it will show in the vote.

Oh Dear. Imagine the devastating offence muslims are feeling when their cursors get near the pig logo.
No doubt that is the reason the poll is not 99% yes.

Don't be fooled now.
Asking GeenStijl readers if they want Wilders prosecuted is like asking GoV readers if they think sharia law is a good thing.
The GeenStijl article is totally tongue in cheek, and everyone knows it. As a matter of fact, GS makes it no secret that it is 'in the business of' manipulating internet polls in order to demonstrate the inherent unreliabity of those polls.

I feel sufficiently stupid. Please excuse my comment above.

Well like Kim said, an opinion poll on GeenStijl isn't exactly representative of the population. I'm a daily reader of this blog, and it attracts a very specific kind of audience (usually from the right-wing). GeenStijl knows that as well, presenting it as a representative poll is more of a joke from their side.

That's a fabulous idea, sioe. Lets all lobby for pig logos on the ballot -- right next to the names of the Democratic candidates. That works for me.
