The Swedish Moderates party continues to bleed on the polls

Monday, 02 September 2013
The Swedish governing conservative Moderate party continues to fall in terms of voters support for their policies and the Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt could start thinking of life and very young man in retirement.

The part recorded 25.6 percent in the latest Opinion poll conducted by polling organisation Ipsos in August for the Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter and it turns out that it is the lowest the party has recoded since November 2008.

Voter's support
Social Democrats 34.4
The Left party:  6.9
The Green Party
Sweden Democrats  8.4
Centre Party
+ -0
People's Party
Christian Democrats 3.5
Moderate Party

The measurement is based on 2,758 telephone interviews conducted within that month  (figures in parentheses June poll).

Compared with the survey in June, the party's support dropped 0.9 percentage points, which is within the margin of error. However, the decline since April and May, when the Moderates were around 29 percent, is assured.

The Social Democrats increased by 1.3 percentage points to 34.4 percent in August, according to Dagens Nyheter.

The Red-Green coalition now stand at 51 percent against the alliance parties, 39 percent in the August Ipsos survey where all the changes from the June poll are within the margin of error.
