Two-thirds of the population said they trust the authorities’ handling of the Coronavirus, according to a survey that also found support for the Right increasing.
Support for Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) is also increasing, said the survey that Ipsos conducted for Dagbladet.
The Centre Party and Socialist Left Party or SV bounced back on the survey, while the Progress Party (Frp) fell back to the level before the party broke away from the government.
In the survey, the respondents also answered how much confidence they have in the authorities’ handling of the Coronavirus: 19 percent said they have full confidence; 48 percent said they trusted the government and 25 percent responded they had confidence. Only 7 percent said they have low or no confidence, reports Dagbladet.
Confidence is particularly high among right-wing voters, with 90 percent saying that they have full or great confidence in the government’s handling.
Solberg’s popularity has also risen since the last survey.
“Solberg’s support has been low for a long time. She is now in her 77th-month as prime minister and she has not achieved such good results as this in over 1.5 years,” said Mads Motrøen, who is responsible for Ipsos’ barometer of political parties, to the newspaper.
The survey also showed that 45 percent said they think she is doing a good job compared to 37 percent last month.
The support for the parties is as follows: Red 4.7 (+1.2), SV 9 (+1.9), Ap 24.9 (-0.9), Sp 17.4 (+2.6), MDG 4 , 4 (-1.0), KrF 3.7 (+0.1), V 2.6 (-0.9), H 20.8 (+2.0), Frp 11.4 (-2, 8).
Among 1,000 respondents, 649 respondents answered during the period 18 to 20 March.
