Support for the controversial Swedish party can be even bigger than the measurement indicates, says election researcher.
Sverigedemokraterna gets his so far best result in a new poll from statistics Sweden, SCB. The party stands to get to 22.6 percent of the vote.
the poll, which is conducted in november, shows a significant progress compared to a measurement in may, where the party was to get 17.1 percent of the votes.
- It is very possible that the SD is even greater, says election researcher Jenny Madestam.
She adds that the most interesting thing is that Sverigedemokraterna is now the second largest party in the measurement, which is considered to be the most reliable in Sweden.
Madestam assesses that support for Sverigedemokraterna may be greater than the measurement indicates, because the most are made through landlines and is extended over a relatively long time. It thus reflects not the recent fluctuations among the voters.
the poll shows at the same time, it goes back for the ruling social democrats. The party gets its worst result with a decline from 27.6 per cent in may to 26.3 in november.
According to the poll is the conservative Moderaterna now only the third largest in the Parliament with a support of 18.3 percent. However, this is an improvement compared to may, when the party stood to gain, accounting for 16.0 percent.
the leftist party goes back a bit and stands to get the 8.1 percent of the vote. The same applies to Miljöpartiet, which now stands to make 5.1 percent of the votes.
Liberalerna, which has been below the threshold in several recent measurements, is to get the 4.1 percent against the 3.7 percent in may. In Sweden the threshold of four percent.
the centre party, which had 6.9 percent in may, get the 7.3 percent in november.
SCB's measurement is made at national level among 9149 voters.
the social democrats under the leadership of prime minister Stefan Löfven (S) govern Sweden in a governing coalition with Miljöpartiet and with the support from the liberal parties, the centre party and the Liberalerna.
