After a few months of declining support, the Center Party (SP) received 18.7% in Nettavisen’s June poll from Sentio. That is an increase of 4.1% from May, the newspaper writes.
The progress comes just over a week after party leader Trygve Slagsvold Vedum was launched as the Center Party’s prime ministerial candidate, but Vedum himself does not think it had much of an impact.
“Basically, I think it is about these the issues, and there will be a lot of attention around a national assembly,” he told Nettavisen.
The Labor Party (AP) is still the country’s largest party in the poll but has declined by 1.4% from May, to 23.9%. On the red-green side, the Socialist Left (SV) has also declined slightly from May, to 7.0% (-0.3%).
The Red Party and the Green Party (MDG) are both around 5% in the poll – the Reds registered 4.8% (+0.2) and the Greens 5.0% (-0.1) of voter support.
FRP continues to lose support
The Progress Party (FRP) has declined most on the conservative side and ended up at 10.1%, which is a decline of 1.9%.
“We have seen many measurements now at around 10%. It is higher than it has been earlier this year. But it is by no means good enough,” FRP leader Sylvi Listhaug told Nettavisen.
The Conservative Party (H) has 21.9% (-0.3) of voter support, and the other two governing parties both ended up well below the threshold of 4%. The Liberal Party (V) had 2.8% (-0.5) and the Christian Democrats (KRF) 3.3% (-0.5) of support.
In the poll, 1,000 people were asked who they would vote for if there were parliamentary elections tomorrow. The survey was taken from June 8 to June 13. It has a margin of error from 1.1% to 3.1%.
