Moderates make a comeback in the polls
10:25 CET+01:00
Sweden's Moderate Party has started to make a comeback in the polls. According to a February poll by Expressen and Demoskop, the Moderates have clawed back 4.4 percentage points.

The gap between the governing four-party Alliance block and the opposition has been cut to 13.8 percentage points.

There is however a clear loser among the Alliance parties. Jan Björklund's Liberal Party (Folkpartiet) has fallen 3.5 percentage points in the latest poll. The Liberal Party is now at its lowest level of support since Björklund took over as party leader.

The changes in voter support are statistically significant.
