Moderates drop four points in new poll
17:35 CET+01:00
A new poll from Expressen/Demoskop shows support for Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt's Moderate party has dropped by four percentage points to 25.3 percent.

According to Anders Lindholm, CEO of Demoskop, there is a link between the Moderates drop in popularity and the ongoing debate about the treatment of immigrants in the Moderate-controlled Vellinge municipality in the south of Sweden.

But Moderate party secretary Per Schlingmann does not agree there is a connection between the two.

“It’s difficult to draw such conclusions,” he told Swedish daily Expressen.

The four parties of the ruling centre-right block scored 44.3% of the votes in the poll while the red-green block took 50.3%.
