Parties Deadlocked Ahead Of September Swedish Election Poll


STOCKHOLM – Sweden’s main center-left and center-right political blocs are running virtually neck-and-neck just 10 days ahead of an election dominated by worries over immigration, and surging support for the populist Sweden Democrats, a poll shows.

The ruling Social Democrats are the biggest party and the center-left bloc, which includes coalition partner the Greens, and the Left Party hold a slim lead over the four-party Alliance bloc, the poll by Novus for Swedish Television showed.

Neither grouping looks like commanding anything close to a majority with the center-left on 40.2 percent and the Alliance on 38.9 percent.
