Dutch right wing, anti-immigration PVV (Freedom) Party stands to gain in local elections scheduled for March 3, 2010. A recent poll from TNS/NIPO projects that the party will win the city of Almere in the local elections, one of only two cities where the party will run. This as a result of the votes of middle aged white men, many of whom did not vote in previous elections.

Attention to the elections has been heightened by the fall of the Dutch national government and subsequent elections scheduled for June 9 2010. As negotiations to form a coalition government are underway, many parties have already ruled out potential cooperation with Wilders. Only the Christian Democrat Party and the right wing Liberals (VVD ) have not yet done so.
