The Swedish Red-green opposition coalition leads in opinion polls in an April pollTuesday, 10 April 2012
If a general election was to be held in Sweden today, the opposition Red – Green coalition will form a majority government, according to a poll made by polling organisation, United Minds on behalf of Aftonbladet.
The Social Democrats' electoral support has increased by nearly ten percentage points within the past two months and the party now has some 35.6 percent, according to the current April poll.
Support for the Social Democrats is thus a record high, exceeding the election results from both 2006 and 2010.
“You can not find anything in modern times that compare to this”, says Carl Melin, advocacy director at United Minds to the Swedish tabloid newspaper, Aftonbladet.
For the bourgeois coalition government, there are darker days in the future. All four parties in the Alliance coalition lost grounds blamed on the government’s inability to support the creation of jobs and the growing dichotomy in the country’s wealth class.

The Centre Party and Christian Democrats fell heavily and if elections where to be held today those to parties would fall out of the parliamentary threshold parliament if it were an election today.
But the far rights still remain strong as Sweden Democrats slopes slightly to 7.2 percent. But if election were to be held, the far rights will still be in parliament meaning that though support for the socialists is growing, there is still resentment in Sweden against immigrants.
