Iceland’s Pirate Party has reached a new high in a recent Gallup poll, but support for all parties changed little betweens polls.
As has often been the case, the Pirates also have a higher level of support than the two parties in the ruling coalition – the Progressives and the Independence Party – combined. Currently, the Progressives are at 12.1% and the Independence Party is at 23.2%.
Where other parties are concerned, the Social Democrats are now at 9.5%; the Left-Greens are at 11%; and Bright Future is at 3.2%. A newly-formed centre-right party, Viðreisn, appears in the Gallup poll for the first time, and has started off at 2.5%.
