A new opinion poll continues to give the opposition a substantial lead over the ruling four party centre-right coalition. If there were a general election today, the Social Democrats, Greens and Left Party would get a total of 50.4 percent of the vote, with the conservatives Moderates, Christian Democrats, Centre Party and Liberals scraping together 42.7 percent. The anti-immigration Sweden Democrats would get 6.2 percent.

Changes in the polling leels for the centre-right parties are fairly small, but the Social Democrats see their support fall by 4.5 percent, according to the new figures. Most of those voters seem to have moved to the "unsure" category, according to news agency TT.

The Social Democrats saw a rise in support when new leader Stefan Löfven took over earlier this year.

In the government camp the Christian Democrats will be the most worried, they polled just 3.6 percent in the new survey, that would mean they would not make it into parliament as they fall below the 4 percent threshold for parliamentary representation.
