The poll asked Swedes who they would vote for if the national election were held today. If they do only receive 3.1 percent of the vote in the election in September, the Center Party would not achieve the minimum four percent needed to remain in the parliament.
"These are obviously very bad numbers," Center Party leader Annie Lööf told Swedish Radio P1 this morning. She claims that the party typically does not do well in polls between elections but they always have a surge right before the election.
The Center Party is not the only party in danger of not returning to the parliament this September, their coalition colleagues the Christian Democrat Party polled only slightly higher at 3.4 percent. However, the Left Party is on the rise, polling at 9.1 percent, a 2.1 percent increase from the last poll.
If the election were held today, the left-green coalition, including the Social Democrat, Green and Left Parties, would win the election. They have a total of 53.1 percent support in the poll, while the current centre-right coalition government coalition has only 37.9 percent.
