The Red-green coalition cruising in opinion polls as they keep their lead to the finish line
Sunday, 06 October 2013
The Social Democrats, The Green party and the Left party, other wise
known as the Red Green coalition continue to keep their lead in the
Swedish voters minds as voters support for these parties and the
coalition remain robot with election drawing closer.
They are now greater than the governing parties of the Alliance
coalition, made up of, the Conservative Moderates, Centre party,
People's party and the Christian Democrats.
The opposition has a clear advantage in voter opinion, just a year
before the election, but it is clear that there are many obstacles that
can quickly turn things around - just like before the 2010 election.
Something the Red-Greens would want to avoid at all costs - something
the Alliance constantly recalls and could take advantage of.
If election were held today, the Red-Green parties would have a
majority in parliament, a news aggregate of the main opinion
polls assessed in last month's poll or poll of polls for the Swedish
television show. In fact, the Social Democrats and the Greens together
today attracts more supporters than the bourgeois alliance coalition

In addition, the Centre Party at this moment is finding it very hard to
reach the parliament accession barrier of four percent. The Social
Democrats have persistently said that voters "should be informed in
advance before the election," about coalition interests.
Therefore, it is unclear what it means now that elections is just
a year away and if the Alliance tapped into one of the Red- Green
coalition members that would be a disaster for the Social Democrats.
The analysis after the last election was that the Social Democrats lost
just because they failed to build a proper governing options with the
likes of the Left party.
Now as the various parties juggle for position, they have to make
their position clearer earlier. So where will they be after the next
The Green Party, which had previously been open to collaborations with
both sides, have repeatedly hinted that it is now leaning Social
Democrats. The Left Pary, however, would love to be in the Social
Democratic camp but neither Socialists nor Greens have yet responded to
This makes the Prime Minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt, feels that there is
an opportunity languishing out there to grab. Since the centre party is
failing to reach the parliamentary threshold of 4 percent, and the Left
party could reach and pass that threshold, it would means that his
alliance coalition could welcome the Leftist communist leaning into
government. That would mean that of the Socialist the Greens score
lower than 50 percent, the Social Democrats will still be out of
Nevertheless, the danger here is if Fredrik Reinfeldt talks to the Left
now and then the Centre party regains its composure on the polls and
the actual voting shows them gaining above 4 percent, what will the
Prime minister do with their former ally? Quagmire!
