It would seem that migration hardliner, Deputy Prime Minister and Lega leader Matteo Salvini is on the right track. His coalition government partners, 5 Star Movement (M5S) have lost 6 points and are now at 27 per cent. A previous poll showed that Italians think of Matteo as Italy’s true leader ahead of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte
He recently held an ‘Italians First’ rally in Rome before 80,000 people with the crowds cheering and waving flags. As well, everywhere he goes the Italian people flock to him to get selfie’s with him and just express their gratitude for his strong stance for Italy.
