Jimmy Åkesson - On his way to parliament?

Sweden Democrats Increase To 5.8 Percent

The latest Sifo electoral opinion poll for November shows that the far right Sweden Democrats are now more popular than two of the parties in government, the Christian Democrats and the Centre party, with a record 5.8 percent of voter sympathies.

The poll published in the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper shows that the anti-immigrant party increased its voter support by 1.1 percent from Sifo's previous survey last month. The party clearly hasn't been harmed by an article in Aftonbladet recently by leader Jimmy Åkesson in which the party's anti-immigrant views were clearly represented.

The environment party, the Greens, also enjoyed a boost with a 2.1 percent rise in support up to 9.7 percent.

The largest party in opposition, the Social Democrats, showed a slight drop in support, down from 35 .7 percent to 33.3 percent, while the main party in government, the Moderates, were down 0.7 percent to 28.5 percent.

In the survey, 1894 people were questioned about what party they would vote for if the election was today. There's a long way to go though with the election not taking place until next Autumn.
