The latest polls on the Dutch elections tomorrow are on the Volkskrant website. These polls show some large discrepancies: in one, left party SP has 22% of the vote, and in another, it has 32% of the vote (!). And as this rises, the labor party PvdA loses voters as they see the possibility for a left coalition rather than a moderate government come more and more into view. I think the 32% is exaggerated, but even so, it is amazing considering how many people thought that SP's strong performance in the recent local elections was a fluke and could not translate into national voting patterns.
