Opposition still ahead in polls
The Left-Green opposition parties remain ahead in the latest DN/Ipsos poll but a recent spurt in support has leveled off.
Sweden’s governing centre-right coalition has 45.1 percent support compared to 48.9 percent for the opposition parties.
Dagens Nyheter newspaper reports that the Social Democratic Party made poling history with a record increase in support from 23.7 percent in January this year to 35.6 percent in March. Support for the largest party in the coalition, the centre-right Moderates increased by just over 2 percent to 34.6 percent.
The survey asked 2,200 voters “Which party would you vote for if the general election were held tomorrow?”.
