Poll: Moderate Party support falls further

A new opinion poll suggests support for the center-right Moderate Party has slipped further, while the far-right Sweden Democrats remain the second largest party.

The Novus poll, carried out for Swedish Television, shows support for the Moderates falling to 16.4 percent, a drop of 1.6 percentage points from the previous survey and six points down from January's poll. 

The far-right Sweden Democrats garnered 19 percent, a slight drop from the previous poll, making them Sweden's second largest party after the center-left Social Democrats with 28.2 percent support.

For the poll, 4,008 people were interviewed by phone between March 20 and April 16.
