Stronger support for the European Union among voters

Support for Sweden’s membership in the European Union is increasing compared to previous European Union elections. The polling station polling showed that the increase applies regardless of party affiliation.

Even among Swedish Democratic voters, support for Sweden’s membership in the European Union is growing. But the Swedish Democrats are still the only party voters want more than stay.

Support for development towards a European federal state remains weak among voters.

All numbers have been re-weighted against the preliminary election result on May 27th

The questions asked were “In general, what is your position on the European Union?” Do you think Sweden should leave the European Union or remain a member? And “Do you think it is a positive or negative thing if the European Union develops into a federal state, a kind of European United States?”
