But the results also sugest they think it is the prime minister himself who bears the greatest responsibility for the government crisis.
Sixty nine percent of the 1,000 Swedes surveyed by pollsters Demoskop on behalf of tabloid expressen back the Social Democrat leader's decision on Wednesday to call a snap election after his minority government's budget bill was defeated in parliament.
However, when asked which person was most responsible for Sweden's biggest political crisis in decades, 48 percent said that it was the prime minister himself, closely followed by Jimmie Åkesson, whose party the Sweden Democrats brought down Löfven by voting for the budget of the opposition Alliance.
"It is clear that it has become very polarised based on party loyalties," Anders Lindholm, managing director of Demoskop told expressen.
The new election will take place on March 22, 2015.
