According to newspaper Aftenposten’s analysis, low-paid workers and men are among the voters who are turning their backs on the Progress Party (FRP).
FRP’s deputy leader Sylvi Listhaug wants to win back the party’s core voters.
Aftenposten has looked at background figures from opinion polls and compared them with reference months in the spring of 2019 and statistics from elections.
The analysis shows that almost every third male voter has abandoned the party since the spring of 2019.
Some people with low wages did the same. Four out of ten people with a household income of less than half a million kroner turned their back on the party since the spring of 2019.
When Siv Jensen announced that she was resigning as party leader this week, she pointed to Sylvi Listhaug as her preferred heir.
Listhaug told Aftenposten that it’s important for the party to regain the party’s core voter groups’ trust.
“We have been too vague, and they (voters) do not recognize us. We must take this seriously,” she said.
