The Center Party’s support has increased by a total of 3% in TV 2’s latest poll – in just a few days. Last Wednesday, the party’s support was measured at 11%, but now it’s at 14%. Thus, the party has recovered from some of the setbacks from the last few weeks.

The marked progress alone potentially raises the Labor Party’s preferred government platform, consisting of the Socialist Left Party (SV), the Center Party (SP), and the Labor Party (AP), to 86 seats and a majority in the Norwegian parliament, TV 2 writes.

The Labor Party’s support increased by 0.2$ in the poll and is now measured at 23.4%, while the Socialist Left Party’ssupport decreases by 0.1 to 9.4%.

Both the Red and Green parties ended up above the threshold in the survey, receiving 5.4% (+0.4%) and 4.3% (-0.7%), respectively.

On the conservative side, all parties suffered losses, with the exception of the Progress Party (FRP), which increased its support by 1.0% and is now measured at 10%.

For the other parties, the support is as follows: Conservatives (H): 20.5% (-0.8%), Liberal Party (V): 4.6% (-0.2%), Christian Democrats (KRF): 3.6% (-0.7%). The category “other” is measured at 4.9% (-0.5%).

The survey was conducted by Kantar between August 31 and September 3. A total of 1,388 respondents were included in the survey. The margin of error is between +/- 1.1% and +/- 2.3%.
