Italian centre-left outpaces centre-right in latest poll
Gains for PD, losses for M5S28 February, 13:51
Voter approval for the PD rose to more than 30% after PD chief and new Italian Premier Matteo Renzi made his case before the Senate in front of a parliament confidence vote for his new government.
The gains put the centre-left coalition at 36.2%, ahead to of the centre-right's 35.8% after reaching neck-and-neck parity last week.
Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's centre-right Forza Italia (FI) party overtook the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) led by comedian-turned-politician Beppe Grillo. The FI garnered 22.5%, up from 21.7% last week. The M5S came in at 21.8%, down from 23.7% last week.
Undecided voters rose to more than half of the total, however, at 50.7%, up from 48.1% last week.
