The Progressive Party, which leads the ruling coalition, is now only the fourth largest party in the country, and edges out the others by about 2%.
According to the newest poll from Market and Media Research, the Independence Party is once again the largest party in the country, with 28.2% of respondents saying they would vote for the party if parliamentary elections were held today. The Independence Party has also seen a rise in support since the last poll, taken a month previous, when it was polled at 26.6%.
Bright Future is the next largest party, which went from 17.6% to 17.8% between polls. Less than a point behind them are the Social Democrats, who are currently at 16.9%, but were at 20.3% a month ago.
Trailing behind them all are the Progressives, currently at 11.3% and up from 10.1% in the previous poll. At the same time, they edge out the two other parliamentary parties who polled lower than they did – the Left-Greens and the Pirate Party – by only about 2%. The Left-Greens have gone from 11.8% to 10.1%, while the Pirates have gone from 10.3% to 9.2%.
