Xenophobic Party Scores Among Young People

If young people could vote, Sweden would be lurching to the right, and the xenophobic Sweden Democrat party would enter parliament as the third largest party.

Among those who took part in a survey of 15 to 21 year olds conducted by the newspaper “Aftonbladet” and the online community Lunarstorm, the Sweden Democrats have just under 12 percent support. The opposition Conservative Moderates topped the poll, followed by the ruling Social Democrats, with just over 20 percent each, well under their actual support among voters.

The discrepancy might be explained by almost as many young people in the survey choosing to reject all parties.

Swedes go to the polls in September, and according to polls the Social Democrats and their Left and Green allies retain a slight lead over the four party center-right opposition alliance.
