General Election, Election Survey 2014

2016-02-01

Voter volatility in Sweden remains at a historically high level. The proportion of floating voters between the 2010 and 2014 Riksdag election was 36 percent. Accounts of an increasingly volatile electorate are well-known, but also very one-sided. Considerable voter volatility no longer means that voters are lost or confused. The ideological orientation and standpoints of political issues clearly mark the limits for the scope, character and effects of voter volatility.
