A new poll from Market and Media Research shows the Pirate Party on top again, as they have been for the past nine months now.

According to the poll, the Pirate Party has the largest level of support, coming in at 35.3%, up by about 1% from the previous poll, conducted last month. While levels of support for the party have had their ups and downs, they have been the leading party since at least March 18 of this year.

The Independence Party has risen by two points since the previous poll, and are now at 23.7%. Their partners in the ruling coalition, the Progressive Party, rose slightly between polls, to 10.8%. This places the Pirate Party at a greater level of support than both parties in the ruling coalition combined.

Where other parties are concerned, the Social Democrats dipped a point between polls to 10.5%; the Left-Greens lost two points, taking them to 9.9%; and Bright Future lost two points as well, taking them down to 4.6%.
