For the first time since Kantar started doing political opinion polls in Norway in 1964, the Center Party (SP) is larger than the Labor Party (AP) and the Conservatives (H). 

The Center Party has 22.1% of voter support, up 2.3% from November. The party is attracting voters from the Progress Party (FRP), the Conservatives, and the Labor Party, according to the latest Kantar poll for TV 2.

FRP’s support falls

The FRP and the Conservatives are down by 2.7% and 1.9%, respectively. 

The Conservative Party has 20.2% of voter support, while the FRP is at 8.8%.

The Labor Party is down 0.1% from the previous poll and has 20.4% of support.

In February, the Progress Party was at 15.7% of support, and the Center Party was at 15%. Now the distance between the two is gigantic – in SP’s favor.

The Greens

The Greens (MDG) have 3.96% of support, while the Liberal Party (V) has 3.98%. 

In VG’s poll for December, SP was also larger than the Labor Party for the first time, but the Conservatives remained the most popular party in Norway in VG’s poll.

  1. Senterpartei does seem to be more Norway- and less ideological-focused.

    For example, Liv Signe Navarsted has most questioned Norway’s mis-involvement in Syria (albeit via Jordan).

    I would hope Senterpartei will now raise strong questions about civil defense/sivillforsvars in Norway.

    Biden’s election greatly increases the chance of (inevitably nuclear) war with Russia breaking out, and the West’s militarists seem to be planning to have it up here in the North. Secretary of State designate Antony Blicken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan are rabid pro-war “liberal interventionists,” and they have no children of their own to “bring hom”e concern about our loved ones. (Presumably, *their* civil defense accommodations will be lavish, being elites.)
