The Sweden Democrats, known for their harsh stance against immigration, continue their poll surge with just four days until voters choose their new government, according to data from DN/Ipsos.

The poll shows that the Swedish Democrats have increased 1.4 percentage points since the last survey, rising to 22.2 percent, the highest result of the party from Ipsos since February 2020, before the Covid-19 pandemic. At the end of August 2018, the Swedish Democrats received just over 16 percent in ipsos, to land on an election result of 17.5 percent.

The left-wing Social Democrats are losing 2.1 percentage points and are at 28.3 percent, which would be below the party’s election result in 2018. It is also the lowest Ipsos rating since Magdalena Andersson took office as prime minister in November.

The Sweden Democrats have increased their lead over the Moderates, with that party standing at only 16.8 percent.

The Sweden Democrats have campaigned to dramatically reduce immigration to protect the country’s social welfare system, reduce crime, and improve integration. Their message appears to resonating with voters.

It is not the only poll that shows the Sweden Democrats will become the country’s second-largest party, but the election remains a tight race between the right and the left in the country. The Ipsos poll shows the blue-yellow, right-leaning parties would win a majority, with 49.8 percent of the vote compared to 48.9 percent for the red-green bloc, however, the margin is small, and other polls have shown the left ahead.

In the Ipsos poll. the Left Party, the Green Party, the Liberals, the Moderates and the Christian Democrats note small increases, while the Moderate Party decreased.
