Yle’s survey: NCP again in the lead, the center loses to SDP and Perussuomalai

The main opposition party (NCP) was still the most popular party in Finland last month with a 23.4 percent position, according to Yle’s monthly survey published on Thursday.

Tuomo TurjaThe director of economic research told Yle that the party’s support is still there "unusually high" in July, noting that the last time a similar number appeared in the NCP was in 2011, when there were four mid-sized parties in the country.

In the June poll, the NCP’s support fell slightly as one of its MPs claimed, Will Rydmanhad harassed women.

SDP’s support exceeds 20 percent

prime minister Sanna MarinIn July, the Social Democratic Party came in second place with 20.3 percent.

The party’s approval rating has not decreased in surveys, despite recent problems with the state-majority energy company Fortum and its German subsidiary Uniper, which Finland’s Minister of Ownership Titti Tuppurainen (SPD), had to explain.

The center is losing supporters

In the latest voter survey, Keskusta’s support fell again, and its support among voters has fallen by 2.5 percentage points since April.

The former supporters of the center seem to be moving to the NCP camp, Turja pointed out, adding that according to the study, they also appealed to the Basic Finns, both of whom are in the opposition.

"This is not necessarily due to any clear policy problem," Turja pointed out.

The support of basic Finns has been on the rise slightly during the summer. The support of the voters of the country’s third largest party increased by one percentage point in the most recent survey.

Taloustutkimus interviewed 6.7.-2.8. between almost 3,000 people. Just under 2,000 respondents expressed their support for the party. According to the study, the margin of error is plus or minus 1.8 percentage points in either direction.
