The main exit poll in Wednesday’s Dutch general election show far-right, anti-Islam leader Geert Wilders losing rather badly to Prime Minister Mark Rutte. According to the Associated Press, the polling suggests Rutte’s center-right party has 31 of the 150 lower-house seats, with Wilders’ populist Party for Freedom gaining very few new seats. Wilders’s defeat suggests far-right populism in Europe is not invincible, even after victory for the Brexit movement and the rise of Marine Le Pen in France.
