The number of people in Hordaland who want Erna Solberg (H) as prime minister even after this autumn’s election has fallen sharply from 54.6% in March to 46.6% in May.

At the same time, the number of those who want Labor Party (AP) leader Jonas Gahr Støre as prime minister rose from 29.5% to 38.9% in Sentio’s recent poll for newspaper Bergensavisen. 

Trygve Slagsvold Vedum’s (Sp) support dropped from 15.9% to 14.5%.

“People see it as unrealistic for Vedum to become prime minister, and thus they favor Støre. They only relate to the reality, which is that the support parties – SV and MDG – will go for Støre,” Terje Sørensen, TV 2’s election expert, told the newspaper.

“Strongest card”

He pointed out that Solberg’s support is still significantly better than the Conservatives’.

“All the polls show it. She is their absolute strongest card,” Sørensen said.

Sentio carried out the survey between May 7 and May 11. A total of 1,000 people were interviewed.
