The Red Party (Rødt), the Socialist Left Party (SV), and the Green Party (MDG) received 34.2% percent of voter support in Oslo in a new Klassekampen and Nettavisen poll.
The SV got 13.7%, Rødt got 9.8%, and MDG got 10.7% of support in Klassekampen’s and Nettavisen’s election poll for Oslo.
The support related to these three parties increased by a total of 5.6% from the corresponding Oslo poll in June.
At the same time, the Labor Party (AP) got 20.1%. If the poll results were the actual election results, they would be the worst parliamentary election results for the Labor Party in Oslo since the election in 1924 and 8.4% below their election results in 2017.
Oslo Conservatives register low support
The Conservatives also registered very low support in the poll. The party’s support decreased by 2.9% to 22.8%. If the poll results were the actual election results, they would be the worst results for the Conservatives in Oslo since the party was founded in 1884.
The Liberal Party (V) got 7.4% of support (+1.8%), the Progress party (FRP) got 5.6% (-0.8%), and the Center Party got 4.7% (+0.2%).
Today, the AP has five parliamentary representatives from Oslo, while Rødt and the SV together have three. According to this poll, the Labor Party would lose a mandate, while Rødt and the SV would get a total of five representatives. In addition, the MDG would get two representatives, the Liberal Party and the FRP would get one each, while the Conservative Party would get five.
Oslo is the largest constituency in the country. A total of 800 people were asked who they would vote for if the parliamentary elections took place tomorrow. The survey was carried out by Sentio between August 16 and 19. It has a margin of error between 0.9 and 3.2%.
