Poll dip for main parties ahead of EU elections

Support for the Moderate party has dropped five percentage points to 22.6 percent, according to opinion polls on upcoming elections to the European Parliament conducted by Sifo since April. The Social Democrats, who have also lost ground, now stand at 31.7 percent.


“The figures show a progressive decline in support for both parties,” said Sifo’s Toivo Sjören to Svenska Dagbladet.

In the latest survey, published in SvD on Saturday, 22.6 percent of respondents said they would vote for the Moderate Party, a drop of 1.3 percentage points on the previous poll, while support for the Social Democrats fell by 0.2 points to 31.7 percent.

Other results were: Green Party: 10.2 % (+1.0), Liberal Party: 10.1 % (+0.8), Left Party: 6.5 % (+1.4), Pirate Party: 6.0 % (+0.1), Centre Party: 5.2 % (-0.3), Christian Democrats: 3.1 % (-0.5), Sweden Democrats: 2.3 % (+0.2), June List: 1.9 % (+0.1).

Other parties accounted for the remaining 0.4 percent (-0.7 percentage points).

The latest survey interviewed 1 896 people between May 18 and 28.
