A new poll from Statistics Sweden has the Sweden Democrats as the second largest political party in Sweden.

According to the survey, the party is just 3.7 percent behind the Social Democrats who have just over a quarter of the vote.

At the bottom of the poll is the Liberal party who are on the brink of losing their place in Swedish parliament, hovering just above the 4 percent limit.

The poll was carried out between October 28 to November 26 and asked more than 9,000 eligible voters in Sweden which party they would vote for if a parliamentary election was held in the next few days.
