Social Democrats regain lead in new poll
08:59 CEST+02:00
The Social Democrats have clawed back the lead as the election nears, according to a new poll. But despite the gains, the Alliance coalition retains its commanding lead with four days to go to election day.

In United Minds' daily survey, published in Aftonbladet, the Social Democrats are once again the largest party after a 1.2 percentage point climb on the previous day's poll.

However, with the support of 27.9 percent of the electorate, the Social Democrats remain significantly below their election result in 2006. The Moderates dropped 1.1 points.

The Alliance retained its lead in the polls after the Centre and Christian Democrat parties advanced slightly.

The nationalist Sweden Democrats had the support of 6.3 percent of the electorate, according to the latest poll and thereby sufficient support to claim seats in parliament.

The United Minds election poll interviewed 1,429 people from September 13th to 15th.
