The Independence Party and the Pirate Party have lost some support between polls, and the Social Democrats find themselves behind every other party with a seat in parliament.

RÚV reports that the Independence Party has the greatest amount of support in the country, currently at 22.6%. The Pirates have the second highest level of support, at 18.3%. Both parties have lost a couple of points of support since the previous poll.

The Left-Greens also saw a small dip in support, and are now at 14.5%, while Viðreisn took a smaller dip, to 12.4%. The Progressive Party actually saw a significant bump upwards in support between polls, and are now at 9.8%

The big surprise, however, is that Bright Future has bounced back from near extinction, polling now at 7.7%, while the Social Democrats continued to tumble, standing now at 7.1%.

Parliamentary elections will be held on October 29.
