Yle Survey: Big jump in support of Finns party, SDP party’s downhill continues
The difference between the Finns who hold the top spot in the survey and the second Coalition Party has grown to almost six percentage points.
The plight of the Prime Minister’s Socialist Party just continues. The party has lost 1.7 percentage points in the October measurement of Yle.
If the elections were held now, the SDP would get 13.9 percent of the vote. With these numbers, the party would be fourth in the election.
Demaris’ support has been on a downward trend since the parliamentary elections in the spring, but it is more than five years ago which saw a similar poor reading.
The popularity of the SDP was last so low in July 2014, 13.8 percent. This is the worst chapter of Antti Rinne’s party leadership.
Expectations for the new government have been high, but few visible decisions have been made in the lives of citizens. This dissatisfaction can be channeled into mainstream parties.
