Sweden Democrats pushing ahead
The controversial party Sverigedemokraterna (Sweden Democrats) is experiencing good times. In the latest poll from Yougov, they are pushing ahead. This fall, the leaders from the eight political parties met for their first debate, though Swedes in general seemed only mildly interested as the program was seen by only 750,000 people. And according to the latest election poll by Yougov, not much has happened. Only one party sticks out from the rest and that’s the Sweden Democrats; 9.3 percent of Swedes today said they’d vote for the Sweden Democrats were there an election in Sweden this year. That’s 2 percent more than last month.
Jimmie Åkesson, leader of the Sweden Democrats, the controversial political party, has reason to smile: His party is pushing ahead in the latest poll.
