Poll says Sweden Democrat vote holding up

The latest opinion poll suggests that Sweden Democrat supporters have not been put off by the video of senior figures making racist and sexist comments and arming themselves with metal pipes.

Polling company Skop asked 1,100 people which parliamentary party they liked the most. Over 6 percent chose the Sweden Democrats, no change from the last survey.

There are no other major changes in the poll, which shows a small lead for the Left, Green and Social Democrat opposition parties over the ruling centre-right Alliance.
