The four parties of the governing Alliance could only count on the votes of 42.3 percent of the survey's participants.
But support for the Christian Democrats has dropped to a new low. With 3.3 percent of the votes, the party would drop out of the Riksdag if an election was called today.
The result represents a drop of one percentage point since February's poll and is most apparent among older men and in small towns.
Göran Hägglund's party has been overtaken by the Sweden Democrats, which saw its support increase by 0.6 percentage points to 3.5 percent.
The poll also showed that the Moderate Party is continuing to lose voters among the self-employed, many of whom now favour the Centre Party. Since January, the Moderate Party's support among those who are self-employed has dropped by 19.1 percentage points to 36.4 percent.
