Overview: Identitarian Parties in Western Countries and their Success

As the title says, this table shows an overview of Identitarian parties in Western countries and how they performed in elections and polls as of June 2016 (I changed the date of this post to January, but you can ignore that).

What is Identitarian? That's the first question I had to ask myself. Well, it is what the media and political "scientists" often call right-wing populist. I wondered, what do they actually have in common? In the end, I came up with three things that constitute the Identitarian ideology:
  1. Nationalism, be it ethnic nationalism (e.g., Germany), cultural nationalism (e.g., Switzerland), or white nationalism (mainly United States). Nationalists want a state for their people, and the Identitarian variant wants to keep their nations homogeneous.
  2. Anti-Globalism. The main political divide today seems to be between Globalists (both left-wing and right-wing) and Anti-Globalists (both left-wing and right-wing). Anti-Globalists do not want to have a world ruled by the UN and dubious NGOs, and they want to prevent the merger of people and cultures and the resulting loss of global diversity.
  3. Anti-Immigration. This is the most obvious and concrete demand of the Identitarians. It also concludes the aim to have a homogeneous state for one's people and the unwillingness to submit to the globalist new world order. 
The table includes "centrist" parties (i.e., big people's parties that happened to fall into disgrace with the global elite, such as PiS in Poland), "moderate" parties (i.e., parties of the new right, which are usually called right-wing populist), and "radical" parties (i.e., true neo-nazis and fascists).

I am glad about every comment that helps me fill in the "???" gaps or gives me updates on polls and elections.
