The Socialist Left Party (SV) registered more than 10% of voter support in a new VG poll. At the same time, the Labor Party (AP) registered a sharp decline, according to the poll.

The SV’s support increased by 3.7%, to a total of 10.4%, in the VG poll published on Thursday. That is the party’s best rating on this poll in at least 13 years. The prolonged decrease of support for the Center Party (SP) has recently stopped, and the party registered an increase of 0.7% in the poll. It is now at 12.6%.

If the poll reflected actual election results, the SV would get only two fewer parliamentary seats than the SP. 

The poll also showed that the AP’s support took a hit. The Labor Party got 23.2% of support, a decrease of 3.4%. Both the Red Party (Rødt) and the Green Party (MDG) are dangerously close to the threshold, with 4.6% (-0.7%) and 4.9% (-1.8%) of support, respectively.

The Progress Party (FRP) registered an increase of 2.1%, and it now has 11.5% of voter support. The Liberal Party (V) got 5.5% (+1.0%), the Christian Democrats (Krf) fell by -0.8% to 3.6%, while the Conservatives (H) fell by 1%, to 20.1%.

A total of 1,001 interviews were conducted in the survey. The margin of error is 2-3%.
