Results from the latest Gallup poll show the Pirate Party polling in the top spot, as they have been doing for ten months in a row.

RÚV reports that, according to the poll, 33% of respondents said they would vote for the Pirate Party if elections were held today. This puts them in the top spot, again, as part of a streak going on ten months now.

Where support for the ruling coalition – comprised of the Progressive Party and the Independence Party – is concerned, 12% said they would vote for the former and 25% for the latter if elections were held today. Interestingly, of those who responded to whether or not they support the coalition as a whole, 39% said they did, or 2% more than the combined support of the two parties therein.

Other parties did not fare so well. 11% said they would vote for the Left-Greens; 10% said they would vote for the Social Democrats, and 4% said they would vote for Bright Future.

Outside of party-specific results, 5% said they would vote for a party not currently in parliament, 9% said they would submit a blank ballot, and 12% would not disclose their affiliation.
