News, Politics | Sp is approaching the blocking limit in the new TV 2 measurement

The party continues to fall, and the September poll is a drop of 2.2 percentage points from the August poll. The party is thus the same size as Venstre, which stands at 4.5 percent.

The Labor Party, for its part, climbs with a cautious 0.4 percentage points to 20.8 percent. Still, there is a long way to go for the Right, which rises by 0.6 percentage points to 27.8 percent.

The negative Sp trend is causing concern among several Sp mayors, who think it may be time to discuss government participation.

– If the government collaboration is as costly for the Center Party as it looks now, we should make an assessment of it. I hope we do that before the national assembly next year, because in that case it will be too close to the election, says Lyngen mayor Dan Håvard Johnsen (Sp).

He is supported by Bardu mayor Toralf Heimdal (Sp), who believes that Ap almost has veto power in the government and that this helps to explain the decline.

– There is no point in being in government if you cannot bring about political changes. Now there is relatively little of that, says Heimdal.

The distribution of mandates gives a solid bourgeois majority with 89 seats in the Storting, even if the KrF is still below the threshold.

The parties’ support (change from August in brackets):

Ap: 20.8 (+0.4), Conservative Party 27.8 (+0.6), Center Party 4.6 (-2.2), Frp: 14.1 (+0.9), SV: 8, 4 (-1.5), Red: 8.2 (+1.2), Left: 4.6 (-0.4), MDG: 3.7 (+0.1), KrF: 3.5 percent (+0.2) and other parties: 4.5 (+0.7).

The survey has 976 respondents and was taken up by Kantar from 29 August to 2 September. The margin of error lies between 1.4 and 2.8 percentage points.
