Left Party gets Social Democrat voter boost

A majority of Social Democrat voters, 65 percent, are in favour of a government formed in partnership with the Left Party if necessary after the election.

Just 22 percent are opposed to allowing the Left Party into power, according to an opinion poll from Synovate Temo, published on Friday in Dagens Nyheter.

But Social Democrat voters are more divided over whether to let the Green Party join them in government, with 46 percent opposed and 42 percent in favour.

47 percent of those surveyed said they were in favour of a government formed with both parties.

In the poll, 1,018 people were interviewed between May 16th and May 22nd.
