The poll was commissioned from Sifo by PR agency Westander. Pollsters interviewed 1,000 voters.
“Fifteen percent of those who say that they vote for the left-wing parties have greater faith in Reinfeldt, while 7 percent of right-wing voters have greater faith in Sahlin,” Westander wrote in a statement on Monday.
Reinfeldt’s personal popularity contrasts with support for the government as a whole. The four-party Alliance has been trailing in opinion polls for months, with latest surveys putting them nearly eight points behind the opposition.
Sifo asked voters: “For whom do you have greater confidence as Prime Minister – Fredrik Reinfeldt or Mona Sahlin?”
