Social Democrats up in new poll

A new poll from Sifo indicates that the opposition Social Democrats have seen their support increase by 3 percentage points, up to 33.5 percent.

The survey, conducted for the newspapers Svenska Dagbladet and Göteborgs-Posten, also shows two of the parties in the government coalition, the Center and the Christian Democrats, below the 4 percent threshold to stay in parliament.

The polls show the opposition red-green parties continue to maintain a lead over the coalition, the 49.9 percent for the Social Democrats, Left, and Green parties, compared to 39.2 percent for the conservative Moderates, Liberals, Center and Christian Democrats.

The anti-immigration Sweden Democrats, who have been repudiated by both blocks, show a half percentage point dip to 9.4 percent.

The results (with the change from the June survey in parenthesis):

  • Social Democrats 33.5 % (+3.0)
  • Left Party 6.4 % (-0.1)
  • Greens 10-0 % (-0.9)
  • conservative Moderates 25.7 % (-0.9)
  • Center 3.6 % (-0.4)
  • Liberals 6.3% (+0.4)
  • Christian Democrats 3.6 % (-0.2)
  • Sweden Democrats 9.4 % (-0.5)
  • Others 1.5% (-0.4)

There were 1924 participants in the survey, who were asked "What party would you vote for if there was an election today?"
