The poll shows that 47 percent of voters have high or quite high confidence in Fredrik Reinfeldt, while only 19 percent displayed the same enthusiasm for Mona Sahlin.

Only 4 percent stated that they had a high level of confidence in Mona Sahlin, while 24 percent answered yes to the same question for Reinfeldt.

34 percent of voters expressed very little confidence for Mona Sahlin, while 18 percent said the same of Fredrik Reinfeldt.

"I have had an uphill struggle for quite some time in these types of surveys," Mona Sahlin told TV4.

The Novus Opinion survey was commissioned by TV4 and involved 1,000 respondents.
