Some 36 percent of respondents in a Skop poll said the government was doing a very bad or a fairly bad job, up one percentage point on December figures.
42 percent said the government was doing a very good or quite a good job, which was 2 points lower than in December.
"It is the government's lowest confidence balance since the parliamentary elections in 2006. The drop in confidence follows a downward trend that began more than six months ago," said Skop analyst Birgitta Hultåker in a statement.
The news was not much better for the Social Democrats. When polled, 38 percent of respondents said a Social Democrat government would do a better job than the centre-right Alliance, down from 40 percent in December.
28 percent said a Social Democrat government would be worse, compared to 25 percent in December.
Skop's poll is based on a survey of 1,000 people carried out from January 21st to February 7th.
