- Upcoming vote is on prime minister Matteo Renzi’s proposed reforms
- Early polls suggest he is losing the vote by 11% in some areas of Italy
- Lack of support is being seen as a failure to reach out to the poor
- Rejection would follow Brexit and Trump in shunning political status quo
Italy is poised to become the next country to reject the establishment as a shock poll finds referendum protest vote is poised to beat the government.
The upcoming vote on prime minister Matteo Renzi’s reforms will be thrown out by an 11 percentage point margin in the south of the country, according to a Demos poll.
It is being seen as his failure to reach out to the working class in the poorest areas of Italy, predominantly located in the south.
