Patriotic anti-immigration party by far the largest in Sweden now: Yougov poll
Support for the Swedish Democrats increased by an unbelievable 5.5 percentage points in the latest survey from Yougov, reaching 28.5 per cent, Metro reports.
According to Yougov’s June survey, the Swedish Democrats are the biggest party by a large margin. In second place come the Social Democrats, with 22 per cent, followed by the Moderates who polled only 17.3 per cent.
“This is like a dream setting,” SD party secretary Richard Jomshof tells Metro. He describes the new numbers as “amazing”.
Metro mentions that some of the participants in the study stated that they had switched from the Social Democrats to Swedish Democrats. A 53-year-old man from southern Sweden says:
“Social Democrats have repeatedly deceived the people, dismantling welfare, increasing taxes by 45 million since their inauguration.”
“They allowed migration without proper impact assessment and effectively destroyed Sweden. They avoided discussing issues and showed contempt for democracy. Never, never again!”
In total, 1,520 interviews were conducted during the period 15-18 June 2018 with women and men from 18 years of age and above.
