Labor Party has received the highest ever measured result in the polls by Norstat since 2006. December poll reveals there is a support of 42.8 percent for Jonas Gahr Støre’s Labor.
– It is very strong result for us. We must rejoice it, because it is an expression of a trust on Labor Party, says Støre to NRK.
The party has increased its votes by 1.9 percentage points in one month.
Støre thinks the low level of support for the government parties is sign of discontent for the recent budget proposal by the government. He says there there are quite many in Norway who are not happy with the new budget and the way how it was adopted.
On the other hand, the major government party. Conservatives (Høyre) lose record number of voters with a decline of 2.3 percentage points. Accordingly, the party has declines as low as 21.5 percent.
