The current research is primarily concerned with the political preferences, voting behaviour and interdependence of social, economic and political processes. The modern rise of populist movements across Europe may create an image of the collapse of the liberal democratic order in Europe, as populism is strongly connected with authoritarian practices by the mainstream media and culture. The author is aimed to search, analyze and outline the reasons for support of the populist parties in Western Europe, taking into account cultural, historic and social reasons, alongside with political and economic ones. The discussion over the development of European political culture and comparative analysis of the populist parties of five Western European countries would form the core of the research, whereas the perspectives of populists and comparison with their left-wing counterparts’ popularity would be presented in the second part of the current paper. Finally, in the third part, the results of research would be described and the author would present the conclusion that includes the answer on the research question of the paper.
