lifted his party 4.6 percentage points in less than a month, according

predecessor, Håkan Juholt, whose arrival at the head of the party only
led to the party to keep on sliding.

other papers show that almost 280 000 new supporters came back to he
party, writes Svenska Dagbladet.

Sweden Democrats, which dropped 2.1 and 2.2 percentage points
Among the political blocs, the difference now stands at only 1.9
percentage points between, 48.3 versus 46.4 for the Alliance for the
Red-Green. The Christian Democrats are again under the four percent
threshold required to be a parliamentary party.
There were also some small changes in the Alliance bloc as also within
the Red-Green bloc it was only Social democrats which moved forward
impressively. The party ends up with 29.2 percent of support from

election results. The Greens got 10.5 percent, 1.3 points lower than in

remain at the same position as in the previous survey with 32.9
percent. Centre Party shifted with 0.6 and stops at 5.1, the Liberal
Party goes up by 0.9 to 6.5, and Christian Democrats lost 0.4 and
