MDG plunges in TV2’s latest municipal election poll

The support for the Liberals (Venstre) increases, while the Green Party (MDG) plunges like a rock in the municipal election poll by TV2 for week 34.

The broadcaster’s poll was performed by Kantar TNS during last week – ie before this weekend’s road toll drama.

MDG stands out as the big loser in the poll. After having support from 7 per cent last week, the party now drops by as much as 2.9 percentage points to 4.1 per cent. The background figures show a decline in voters of all age groups and among both genders.

The Socialist (SV) is the other significant loser. It goes back by 0,8 percent points, landing at 6,5 per cent.

At the other end of the scale, the Liberals increases the most – with an increase of 1.5 percentage points to 4.4 per cent support.

The upturn continues for the Centre Party (SP). The party goes up 1.1 percentage points to 17.1 per cent. That is the highest turnout for the party since Kantar TNS started compiling municipal election polls, 19 years ago.



Virtually unchanged for the others

The Labour Party (Ap) is experiencing a slight upturn with an increase of 0.4 percentage points to 23.4 per cent.

The Conservatives (Høyre) is slow steam ahead (0,2 percent points) to 20,8 per cent.

The Progress Party (Frp) moves by the same in a negative direction, landing at 6,1. That would constitute the worst election result for the party since 1983, writes TV2.

Red gets 5.3 per cent (0.2), FNB (and similar local lists) get 3.5 per cent (0.1), while the Christian Democrats (KrF) is at a standstill at 3.4 per cent.

Other parties and local lists get a combined total of 5.5 per cent. Among these, we find the Pensioners Party (0.9), the Christians (0.6) and the Alliance (0.2).

973 persons were interviewed in connection with the municipal election barometer. The poll must be interpreted with error margins ranging from 1.4 to 2.8 percent.
