The Swedish Red - Green are poise to lead the country if opinion polls remain trustedFriday, 13 July 2012
The Swedish governing coalition, the Alliance and the current Prime Minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt, could be described as working extremely hard to improve situations in the country and the economy. Nevertheless, the public does not seem to understand what they are doing.
After gaining a slim majority in the last general election, it was then clear that if the opposition had a better leader and good communication machinery that feed the public their alternative politico-economic positions, then the government would be dead by the time the next election time comes.
It looks like things are shaping in that direction because for the better part of the last 6 months the opposition made up of their own coalition, the red-green coalition have been leading the opinion polls. If this continues, the we'll see a socialist left wing government in Sweden once again.
In the latest opinion poll for example, conducted by a polling organisation Skop published on Friday, the Social Democrats, Left Party and the Greens, which make up the red-green coalition have a combined poll rating of 48.9 percent of voter support, while the Alliance of the Prime Minister Reinfeldt has 46.0 percent.
The Social Democrats party on its own continue to remain the biggest political party in the country and grew by 2.3 percentage points to 34.2 percent while the Conservatives Moderates lost 0.1 percentage points to 31.0 percent of voter support.
Christian Democrats would be kicked out of the parliament if election were held today as they lost their parliamentary threshold. This is although they gained increased support by 0.8 percentage points to 3.7 percent.
Far rights, Sweden Democrats got 4.7 percent of voter support, a decline of 2.3 percentage points. The party is thus the parliament's second smallest.
The survey was conducted between June 20 and July 9 among 1000 Swedish citizens aged between 18 and 84 years who were randomly questioned, "If elections were to he held today who will you vote for?"
