The anti-EU, anti-mass migration Swedish Democrats have surged to first place ahead of Sweden’s election in September.
YouGov have them up by 6 points on 29%. The Social Democrats are lagging behind on 22%, giving the Eurosceptics a large 7 point lead.
This is highly significant as the party has just called for a referendum on EU membership.
Sweden, YouGov poll:
SD-EFDD: 29% (+6)
S-S&D: 22% (-1)
M-EPP: 17% (-1)
C-ALDE: 7% (-3)
Fi-S&D: 1% (-1)

Party Leader Jimmie Åkesson describes the EU as a “a large web of corruption” and told the Swedish media: “We pay an enormous amount of money and get overwhelmingly little back.”
Politics in Europe is changing rapidly. A big win for the Swedish Democrats could rock Brussels to the core. Where Brexit Britain leads, others will follow!
