The Sifo survey shows 35.2 percent for the opposition Social Democrats, with 27.6 percent for the conservative Moderates, the party that dominates Sweden’s center-right government. The poll also indicates that the EU-sceptic June List, the third largest Swedish contingent in the current European Parliament, would fail to return, with less than 2 percent voter support.
The Christian Democrats, also a member of the government coalition here, are hovering below the 4 percent threshold for representation.
They are slightly ahead of the Pirate Party, which wants to reform copyright law and decriminalize file-sharing. Other polls have given the Pirate Party more than 5 percent support, which could translate into one seat in the EU parliament. (gw)
