From Iceland — Poll: Social Democrats Enjoy Most Support

Poll: Social Democrats Enjoy Most Support

Published March 13, 2009

The Social Democratic Party currently enjoys the support of one-third
of the nation, according to a poll conducted by television station Stöð
2 and the newspaper Fréttablaðið.
The party increased support modestly, up from 31% to 33%, despite the imminent retirement of their chairman, Ingibjörg Sólrún Gísladóttir. Many expect the current Prime Minister, Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir, to run for her seat.
The other party in the minority government – the Left-Greens – saw a slight dip in support, from 25% to 22%. Support for the Conservatives rose slightly, to 27%, while support for the Progressives remains unchanged at 12%. Meanwhile, neither the Liberals nor any of the grassroots parties running this spring polled high enough to gain a seat in parliament.
