The M5S must be deeply regreting their decision of forming a government with the Lega instead of the PD as they originally intended to. Salvini is very politically savvy and their anti-estabilishment votes were sucked away.

Even with all the xenophobic sentiment prevalent in Italy, I don't think the Lega would've gotten that large this election without a government platform of their own.
