According to an opinion poll, A new Danish far-right party that wants Islam banned and hundreds of thousands of Muslims deported could win seats in Denmark's parliament in an upcoming election.
The party 'Stram Kurs', which means Hard Line, was founded in 2017 by lawyer Rasmus Paludan who first came to public attention by posting anti-Islam YouTube videos. His stunts have included publicly burning the Koran, sometimes wrapped in bacon, in what he calls a tribute to free speech.
A Voxmeter poll showed that Hard Line would win 2.4 percent of the vote (required barrier to enter the Danish parliament is 2 percent).
Hard Line gathered the roughly 20,000 voter signatures needed to contest the parliamentary election.
It is unclear whether mainstream parties would cooperate with Hard Line if it does win parliamentary seats.
