The immigration critical party is winning votes because of immigration and crime out of control.
For the first time Sweden Democrats (SD) has become Sweden's largest party, according to a new poll.
A poll conducted by YouGov for the left-wing newspaper Metro, gives Sweden Democrats a response rate of 25.2 percent, ahead of the Social Democrats with 23.4 percent and the conservative Moderate Party with 21.0 percent. A year ago, in the parliamentary elections, SD received 13 percent of the votes.
The political researcher Sören Holmberg is not surprised. He tells Metro that asylum and immigration issues are becoming an increasingly important issue for many voters, and that crime also contributes to the large support for the Sweden Democrats.
However, if the so-called December-agreement still stands to the next election, in three years, the party needs 50,1 percent of the votes, a full majority in parliament, to even have a say, as the rest of the parties have excluded SD from any co-operation. Yes, it is that bad. Abuse of democracy.
In the meantime, mass immigration to Sweden is expected to continue, and 2000-2500 migrants are now arriving to the small country - every week.
