Electorate Opinion Shifts in Favour of the Opposition
The centre-left opposition continues to win in Swedish opinion stakes, according to a poll published in Svenska Dagbladet newspaper.
Latest polls favour the opposition party by 53.4 percent over 40.7 percent for the governing centre right alliance parties.
Sweden’s youngest voters aged between 18 and 23 are most in favour of the opposition socialist party. 63 percent of 18-23 year olds sympathise with the opposition, and only 29 percent with the current government.
The far right wing Sweden Democrat party has gained 4.4 percent in the popularity stakes. If there was an election today, they would gain seats in parliament.
