Usually  voters flock to Labor in times of high unemployment, such as now. But in a new survey the party drops by 3.8 percentage points.

Labor now has the of 30.8 percent of the respondents, which is simular to their poor results in the parliamentary elections in 2013, according to the poll made by Norstat for newspaper Vårt Land.
Election researcher Frank Aarebrot had believed that the poll numbers of Labor would be better and points to the record high unemployment and that the party also has got to state its positions on the climate and the asylum policy more clearly
– The unemployment we see now, would normally lead to increased support for Labor among the voters, he said.
While the support of Labour decreases, the support of Right increases by 4.3 percentage points, to a support of 26.1 percent.
