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?”
Select one or more parties to see the distribution of answers among party voters. You can also choose to see the result for everyone who has responded with the ‘All’ option.
About scanning polling station
Valu is a poll for Sveriges Television polling station conducted for all European Union elections since 1995. Because some parties tend to be over-represented and others under-represented compared to election results, the numbers for 2014 and 2019 are weighted here.
The purpose of the Valu Report is to enable analyzes of how and why voters are voting as they do. To get a complete election result, we recommend SVT results page
