The Labour Party and Jonas Gahr Støre got their worst results in four years in a survey Norstat has done for NRK. Ap gets 27.1 percent , a decline of 5.9 percent.
The result is a decline of 3.7 percentage points compared with the 2013 election result, which was a bad election for the Ap.
– This is not good enough for Ap. Our goal is to achieve a majority in order to replace the Frp and the Conservative Government on 11 September so that we will get a new policies, “said Ap-leader Jonas Gahr Støre in a text message to NRK.
At the same time, Frp is doing very well in the NRK’s August survey. The party receives support of 16.7 per cent, which is a 2.7 percentage point improvement since the June survey. At the parliamentary elections in 2013, the party received 16.3 percent of the votes.
Jensen: – We have been visible
Finance Minister and Frp Chairman Siv Jensen explains the figures by saying they have been very visible so far in the election campaign.
-The result is very pleasing. Frp has been successful in the election campaign. We have been very clear and visible on our main issues: Removal of property taxes, a continued strict asylum and immigration policy, measures to improve integration, transport and fire policy, “says Jensen to NTB.
The Conservatives are still standing at 23.8 percent (+0.1) in the survey. The Center Party falls to 9.2 percent, which is a decline of 2.4 percentage points compared with the corresponding figures for June.
The survey gives the current Coalition Government 85 mandates and a majority in the Storting, despite the fact that Venstre is still below the threshold of 3.9 per cent (+0.5). A possible constellation of Ap, Sp, SV, MDG and the Reds will get 84 seats in the parliament in this survey.
Both SV and MDG are above the barrier with a figure of 5.2 and 4.6 percent respectively, an increase of 0.8 and 1.8 percentage points respectively. The Red gets 1.8 percent (+0.6) and KrF 5 (+0.6).
