No Change In The Polls

A new opinion poll has revealed that the Swedish public doesn’t seem to have been that bothered by the latest scandals surrounding the centre-right Moderate party.

The party’s standing in the polls is basically unchanged compared to last month’s figures, before the various scandals involving tax evasion and drunken pub visits by top civil servants broke.

Topping the polls are still the opposition Social Democrats, 43.7 percent of Swedes say they would vote for them if there was an election tomorrow. The Moderates are second in the poll, with 23.1 saying they would vote for the them.

In total the 4 ruling centre-right parties would get 40.5 percent, while the left wing opposition parties still have a commanding lead with 55.6 percent of the vote.
