SURVEY

New blow for Håkan Juholt: survey

Social Democrat leader Håkan Juholt has taken another blow in the opinion polls, with a new survey revealing that he is further behind prime minister Fredrik Reinfeldt than ever before.

New blow for Håkan Juholt: survey

The latest poll, carried out by analysts Skop, revealed that 83 percent of voters feel that current PM Reinfeldt is capable of leading the country, as opposed to only 17 percent prepared to entrust the post to Juholt.

“Confidence in Håkan Juholt’s capability is now at a historically low level. Never before has there been so few Swedes who think he has the ability to lead a government,” Skop analyst Bridget Hultaker told daily Expressen.

The Skop survey, which measured the opinions of 1,000 voters over the past month, revealed that only 52 percent of people who vote for the Social Democrats have faith in Juholt, as opposed to 48 percent preferring Reinfeldt, bringing him down to a similar low level of confidence that former leader Mona Sahlin experienced after losing the last general election.

Meanwhile his personality also came under attack.

When respondents were asked who they would like to be sat next to at a party, 43 percent answered Juholt, a drop of three percent from the last survey.

56 percent meanwhile, would prefer to be next to Fredrik Reinfeldt.

The poll comes in the wake of TV4’s coverage of a separate survey carried out by Novus, revealing that the majority of Social Democrat voters believe Juholt should resign.
