Support for Italy’s anti-migrant League continues to rise and it’s now close to giving the party a potential Parliamentary majority if the country were to vote again.

A new SWG poll aired late Monday by La7 television found that support for Matteo Salvini’s party rose to a record 38% last week, and very close to the 40% seen by analysts as the minimum to secure an absolute majority in the two houses of the Rome-based parliament.
