According to some political polls the growing support for the left-wing Labor and Socialist Left (SV) parties could mean they could forge a majority alternative government without the support of the 'green', agrarian, Center Party. According to a new survey by Intéra Research Lab for newspaper Vårt Land, Labor and SV would have won a parliamentary majority for the second month in a row in their poll. Labor now achieved 29.9 percent support while SV had 20.5 percent. Both parties gained in popularity, as did potential ally the Center Party. Vårt Land observed that not only is SV now the country's second largest party on the IRL poll, it also scored record high potential, with fully 32.6 percent saying they would or could vote for SV. The big loser on the IRL poll was the populist Progress Party which retreated 4.5 percent points to 17.4 percent. They still remain ahead of the governing Conservatives, who had 16.6 percent.
