How the Swedish far right party, Sweden Democrats eat into the heart of the Swedish Conservative sphere
Tuesday, 03 December 2013
The Sweden Democrats Party, the evolving far right party that wants to
take full political control in Sweden and as a result to cleanse Sweden
of anything not “Swedish” has been growing thanks to it finding weak
spots within the Conservatives Moderate party and biting from.
New figures show that the Conservatives Moderates have lost about
102,000 voters to the Sweden Democrats since the last election. From
the Social Democrats 33500voters have gone the same way.
Next Wednesday, the Swedish Statistic Office, Statistic Sweden (SCB)
will release its long-awaited political party preference in Sweden as
elections draw nearer. Because of its size it will get to illustrate
how voters have passed between the parties. But special reports that
Novus has made of its monthly voter barometer on behalf of the Swedish
business daily, Dagens Industri, show new figures on which parties the
Swedish far rights have beaten into since the 2010 election.

In the latest opinion poll conducted in November, three times as
many Moderate - voters as Social Democrats voters went to Sweden
Democrats. The figures represent nearly 101,900 people who voted for
Moderate in the last election who said they would vote for the far
rights if elections were held today.
At the same time, the same survey, based on 2,000 interviews, 33,500 of
the 2010 Social democrats voters would vote for Sweden Democrats is
elections were held today. Except in November, net flows from the
socialists since the election decreased recently.
Sweden Democrats new supporters are more men than women. The
differences in other background factors are too small to be
statistically significant, but there is some over-representation of
people of working age, from Skåne (Southern Sweden) and people without
Sweden Democrats, from all indications will likely have more
political influence in a Social Democrats - led government than in an
Alliance - led government. The reason is that Fredrik Reinfeldt has
been very much harder on the Sweden Democrats than Social Democrats
