Moderate Party support at three year low
Support for the Moderate party, the largest party in the centre right coalition is at the lowest level since the government was re-elected in 2010, according to a new poll of polls.
The poll summary, commissioned by Swedish Radio from the polling company Novus, puts the governing coalition at 42.2 percent compared to 47.6 percent for the Social Democrats, Left Party and Greens combined.
The Moderate Party’s support dropped by 1.5 percent to 28.8 percent in a summary of the largest opinion poll surveys in February.
”This is a rather small change and we’ve seen this kind of opinion rating all autumn. It’s clear for us that it concerns all four alliance parties and that we have a lot more to do,” the Moderate’s party secretary , Kent Persson told Swedish Radio.
He added that the party needs to develop its polices and respond better to societal challenges.
