The Swedish Government: Still in Trouble on the Electoral Arena

without comments

The latest edition of the Swedish Statistical Office’s six-monthly inquiry into party sympathies confirms the picture from almost every opinion poll since the September election: The Swedish centre-right government is in a lot of electoral trouble.

According to the poll which is part of the inquiry, the government stand to gain only 40,5% of the vote against 55,5% for the three opposition parties. This is the worst performance of any Swedish government since the mid-1970s.

The loss of support hasn’t just been massive, it also came surprisingly early, and at some point political scientists will have to address the issue.
