Minority government in Sweden after Rikstag election and four months without government

All 349 seats in the Swedish Riksdag are allocated via a proportional electoral system. Most party lists are regional lists. There are 29 constituencies in Sweden. The previous Swedish gen­eral elec­tion were held on Sep­tem­ber 9, 2018. The Social Democrats won with a bigger margin than expected. The gains by the right-wing populist Sweden Democrats were profound but the still remained in third place behind the centre-right Moderaterna party. Since both, the red block and the blue block fell short of a majority and both ruled out cooperations with the Sweden Democrats the task of forming a government was a daunting one. In the end, the Social democrats formed a minority government. Here on poll of polls we keep on tracking all polls for Sweden.

About

pollofpolls.eu is a private initiative by three data nerds, who want to offer aggregated polling data for upcoming elections in Europe. Slick design, up to date and comprehensive for anyone looking for the most recent polling numbers and their aggregation. We are not fivethirtyeight yet, but everyone must start at the bottom. We are based in Vienna, Austria, in the middle of the EU with its many difficulties and political disputes going on, and by tracking the political polls we try to give you one option to keep pace with the public mood. We are very aware that polls are far from showing the actual full picture, and we, therefore, see them rather as a very good compass, especially when aggregated. Last but not least, we invest our free time and apologize for possibly occurring bugs or errors.

Contact: Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates and more. We also look forward to your feedback, questions or funny gifs, which you can send us via Email contact@pollofpolls.eu.
