The increases mean that the Social Democrats, Left Party and Green Party together now have the support of 48.3 percent of voters, against the centre-right Alliance’s 49.1.
All four Alliance parties have seen a reverse in their figures. The Christian Democrats come off worst – their score of 4 percentage points puts them at risk of disappearing from teh Riksdag altogether.
Demoskop interviewed 1,000 voters between 30th August and 5th September. It is therefore unclear from the poll what effect, if any, the televised party leader debate on Sunday (4th September) had on voters’ intentions. The debate was widely perceived to have been won by the Alliance.
