What is the link of that poll (the 2-3 per cent)? That's EXCELLENT news
and I'd like to propagate it a bit. We've been getting scores between
2.5% and 4.2% in the polls lately, with one year to go until the
national elections with a 4-percent barrier.


(PS: That we got 7.1% in the EU elections should not be seen as a sign
that our support has dropped. The national parliament pulls a much
larger electorate, so scoring is different. Kind of like your second
stomach for ice cream or chocolate, which always has room even if your
primary stomach is full to the brink with normal food.)
