According to a new poll, the Progress Party (FRP) has 4.7% of voter support in Oslo. That is less than half of the support it got in the parliamentary elections in 2017.
The survey was conducted by Opinion for FriFagbevegelse, Dagsavisen, and Avisenes Nyhetsbyrå (ANB). FRP’s decline amounts to 4.8%.
FRP’s first candidate in Oslo, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, says he does not take the survey very seriously.
“We (note: the party’s support) were measured at 9.2% in Nettavisen just a few weeks ago, so I take that number with a pinch of salt,” he told newspaper Dagsavisen.
For the other parties, the support is as follows, with changes from the election in 2017 included: the Conservatives (H) 27.4% (+1.0%), the Labor Party (AP) 24.8% (-3.6%), the Socialist Left (SV) 14.7% (+5.4%), the Green Party (MDG) 7.5% (+1.5%), the Red Party 7.2% (+0.9), the Center Party (SP) 5.3% (+3.2%), the Liberal Party (V) 5.1% (-3.3%), the Christian Democrats (KRF) 2.3% (+0,2%), and others 0.9%.
A total of 603 people participated in the survey, conducted between May 3 and May 5. A total of 73.7% of participants stated their party preference. The margin of error is between 1.7% and 4$, and, as usual, it is the largest for the largest parties.
