Norwegian election 2
Okay, we are closing in on the Norwegian parliamentary election - only five months to go... This has happened in the polls since last time.
Current polls give the A+SV+Sp alternative 92 representatives in the parliament, which is a solid majority (the total is 169). The current coalition government gets 42 representativs. Good bye, Kjell Magne Bondevik!
This is the current situation in the polls:
RV 1.3 (+0.6) (0)
SV 15,4 (+1.0) (28)
This party always wins the promises war, but have never before had to try to fulfill them. They may have to this time. There is much talk on whether SV and A will be able to get a majority on their own, without Sp.
A 29.3 (-1.2) (53)
A wants to take over again, but is unable to say much about what they want to do if they win the election - mostly because they know that governing with SV and Sp will mean a strange hybrid of policies that will be highly unappealing to voters. Will probably lose a little more voters on letting labor unions into the top positions of the party again.
V 2.6 (-0.2) (0)
V will lose both of their representatives if the election is as terrible as these polls...
KrF 6.7 (-0.4) (12)
SP 5.9 (+0.1) (11)
It will be interesting to see if Sp will approach the 4 % limit in this election...
H 16.9 (-0.6) (30)
FrP 19.5 (+0.3)(35)
(The numbers are taken from Bernt Aardal's destilled version of several recent polls.)
