But Grillo's base pleased, survey says

Italians not impressed by M5S strategies for government

Rome, April 15 - While a majority of Italians are not impressed with the parliamentary strategies of the 5-Star Movement (M5S), its own members are overwhelmingly pleased, according to opinion poll released Monday. The survey by SWG market researchers found that about 62% of Italians do not approve of the strategy taken by the anti-establishment M5S MPs, who are refusing to cooperate with established parties to form a new government. However, 76% of those who say they are members of the movement, led by comic-turned-politician Beppe Grillo, support his strategies. Although a general election was held in February, Italy still has no government after Grillo refused overtures from the Democratic Party (PD) to form a coalition. The survey also found that 43% of those surveyed approved of the rookie parliamentarians elected under the M5S banner, a much lower approval rating than the 92% approval reported by party members. The survey was conducted by Trieste-based SWG for RAI 3 television between April 9 and 10 and involved a panel of 1,500 adults giving it a margin of error of +/- 2.9%.
