Government scores high in trust-survey
Not since the days of Olof Palme in the 1980-ies, has a Swedish government been so trusted by the population as the current Centre Right Government, according to one of the country's more quoted surveys of people's opinions.
The so called SOM-report, is published annually published by researchers at Gothenburg University. Wednesday a new report was published, based on a survey of 9000 people between the ages 16-85 carried out during a couple of months last autumn.
Ever since the first SOM-survey at the year of Palme's death in 1986, the levels of trust in the country's Government has been in steady decline. But, in 2008 that changed dramatically. According to Sören Holmberg at the SOM- institute, the Government benefits from how it has dealt with the economic crisis.
