With little more than six months before the 2014 parliamentary election, Sweden's opposition red-green political block is holding onto its strong lead in the polls.

The center-right government alliance parties received 37.8 percent of voters' support in a February poll by Ipsos and newspaper Dagens Nyheter, while the red-green parties, the opposition Social Democrats, Greens and Left parties, captured 52.8 percent. The lead is twice as big as it was at the same time for the 2010 nation election.

The Social Democrats are the party with the biggest jump in the polls. Both the Center Party and the Christian Democrats, members of the ruling alliance, scored below the 4 percent threshold for representation in parliament.
