What is the profile of the average FvD selector? How do they relate to the average PVV selector?


A lot of research has been done about the profile of the FvD-voter in recent times by A.O.. The University of Amsterdam, as by IPSOS.Both in leading newspapers and on Linda.nl is written about this.

The majority of the FvD’ers is male (64%) and older than 65 (31%).About half of the FvD selector is between 35 and 65 years old and comes from the urban areas of the provinces of Flevoland, north and South Holland. With only 36%, the Forum for democracy has the least female voters.

The FvD has on the PVV and think, most low-educated voters of all Dutch parties, namely 24 percent.Only 29 percent of FvD voters are highly educated. Most of them have a (lower) secondary education, equivalent to MBO-3 or MBO-4.


Both the FvD and the PVV are seen by the respondents as right-wing parties.The FvD finds its constituents in urban areas, the PVV has a greater followers in the countryside, especially in shrinking regions. The electorate of the PVV knows the most low-skilled (40%) And the least highly educated (16%).

The parties ‘ themes are also different.For the PVV, Islam is still the biggest point, although Wilders still hang with the cartoons about Islam in 2006. For the FvD voter, who pulls his news more often than the PVV from the Internet, the transition thinking is an important motive. With this, the FvD joins the points of the American alt-right movement: the fight against left-wing politics, feminism and against immigrants. Noteworthy is also that on the website of the FvD specifically to be asked a 鈧?艙normalization of the relationship with Rusland 鈧?

The FvD, like the PVV, is seen as a populist party that is opposed to the Grachtengordel elite or, as Baudet calls it, the party cartel.Also many PVV and FvD voters are in favour of the expulsion of the Netherlands from the European Union.

Normally I don’t answer questions at Quora, but this seemed like a good one to answer first.There we go.

The average profile of the voter will be difficult to determine because the FvD focuses on all sorts of subjects from the usual viewpoints.As a result, people from all walks of society can find themselves at least part of the positions. I myself have also voted for the FvD with the provincial elections. I am currently a student and working on HBO mechanical Engineering. My motivation to vote was, among other things, the opening of ‘ The Party cartel ‘. In my opinion, it lacks parties who have something new to offer or represent my position at all, and I am not the only one in my area (family, friends, fellow students, etc.).

However, I did not vote for the FVD with the European elections of the previous week.Why would you ask, that’s very simple: leaving the EU is STUPID. I also believe that we should be more appreciative of the EU and use it for our profit instead of opposing us. (But that aside)

As for the relationship between PVV voters and FvD voters, I also think it is difficult to say.But what I can say is that the PVV is a two-issue party with the sole purpose of eradicating Islam (unsensible) and leaving the EU (stupid). From this we would be able to resuffer a verzchil between the two parties who are generally reflected in the electorate. The PVV is a populist party with fixed targets and a bad or absent plan. The FvD also has a goal (party cartel breaking up) and has a slightly better plan for that. So my conclusion would be that PVV voters are more against the company Ansich while the voters of FvD want to bring about a change in political happening.

I hope to have answered the question adequately.

I think that at this point it is difficult to say what the profile of the average FvD selector is. It may be that some research has already been done, but investigations are always debatable in terms of representativeness and moment of sample.

As regards this current moment when the FvD has just won a monster win at the provincial elections; The necessary caveats may be placed here.

  1. It concerns here-as far as I know-the first time the party in these elections came out for all provinces
  2. These elections had different points as subject and 脙 漏 脙 漏 N of the most important one that played at that time went over climate; There seemed to be a need to cut down on the measures surrounding climate at national level and the FvD (perhaps) at provincial level had yarn at spun
  3. In my bubble I have received little to nothing from what Forum did to profiling party and views, and with me many more people; I think that is somewhat worrying because I have missed other opinions, on the other hand, because I do not know who they come from, let alone how I talk to them about it; To say that the way in which the Forum has profiled itself-by means of (many) walk-in meetings by the country-may also have played a huge part in the election results.

These points make it difficult to say whether Forum for example did not profited from a newcomers bonus or the state of being in the rural political arena.

Only after the crystallization of the party in terms of organization, views and achievements about say: a decade, you could only find out with some determination which persons choose FvD by default.

In doing so, I notice that there are enough people who do not fit in the typing 鈧?艙Henk and Ingrid 鈧?have now voted on Forum.I think the percentages that I have passed about the layout of the voters ‘ audience of Baudet C.S. are too, to my mind, to derive something from this.

The PVV speaks only one group, the so -Called Henk and Ingrid-Wikipedia.(Yes, ‘t has ‘ n wiki page.) This is also to Wilders ‘ own saying its main target group. The FvD focuses on Henk and Ingrid, but the FvD has a broader horizon.

In any case, FvD entrepreneurs are talking about what the PVV does not generally do.He mainly tries to appeal to young entrepreneurs with libertarian ideas. Scepticism about climate change also seems to me to be partly a signal to entrepreneurs.

Another target group he caters are ‘ n Group of Internet users.Internet culture is richer and more influential than most people seem to realise. A lot of people use dumpert.nl or 4chan, sites where a clear culture prevails.Woman unfriendliness and anti-feminism you see a lot there. For a good example, look for Anita Sarkeesian on YouTube. Anti-immigration is also more or less ‘ n given. Not quite 4chan and wallpapers are so, but certain groups use the sites for spreading anti-feminism and other forms of extreme-right thinking. This internet culture is more or less what is called the alt-right in America, and the alt-Right was a driving force of the Trump campaign (to indicate that these groups do exert influence).

The PVV has never demonstrated any insight into this culture, while FvD has taken over the typical ways of this group.One can e.g. Also find a photo of Baudet and Milo Yannopoulis, a hero within the alt-right. If you look up Milo on YouTube you may see the similarities with Baudet.

This is the difference I see between PVV and FvD.The PVV is a bit outdated, but for a large part of the Henken and Ingrids this does not really matter.

For an excellent answer that contains numbers: answer from Robert Sampimon on what is the profile of The Average FVD selector?How do they relate to the average PVV selector? I have written my answer more as a complement.
