This is because at this moment the leadership power is gradually tilting towards the Social Democrat leader according to a new poll conducted by the polling organisation, Sifo. It also shows that the gap between the Social Democrats and the Moderates has fallen sharply to the advantage of the Social Democrats.
Confidence in the past Social Democratic party leaders have fallen with both Mona Sahlin and Håkan Juholt not being able to convince the Swedish public that they could lead. However, now the tide has turned.
A poll two weeks after the party leaders’ television debate shows that the gap between the Social Democrats leader and the leader of the moderate party, who happens to be the Prime Minister, Reinfeldt has now greatly reduced, writes the tabloid paper Expressen.
At its peak, during Juholts time as leader of the Social Democrats, the gap was 45 percent to Reinfeldt's favour. Now that lead has cut down to down to 17.
“With Stefan Löfven as party leader, Fredrik Reinfeldt, had an opponent who radiates around peace and security and can give the Prime Minister a match in the issue of trust,” says Patrik Westander, President and public opinion expert at PR agency Westander who commissioned poll, to Expressen.
