New Opinion Poll: Dark Day for Bright Future

Bright Future would not get a single member elected to Alþingi if the election took place now, according to the latest Fréttablaðið opinion poll.

Only 3.3 percent of respondents said they supported Bright Future.

The Pirate Party remains by far the most popular, with 37.5 percent saying they would vote for them. That level of support would translate to 26 MPs, out of a total house of 63 members.

The Independence Party enjoys the next-highest support according to the poll. 29.5 percent say they would vote for the Independence Party, which would give them 20 MPs, while they have 19 in the current parliament.

Next come the Social Democrats with 11.1 percent support and seven MPs—down by two from today.

The Progressive Party and the Left Green Movement would get five Members of Alþingi each; down from 19 and seven today.

Present-day Bright Future MP Bryndís Pétursdóttir describes the latest result as worrying for the party. She believes it shows that they are not communicating clearly enough what it is that they are doing.

RÚV reports that the poll was conducted over the phone on June 15 and 16. 1,249 people were called and 800 of them answered the phone and answered the question of which party they would vote for if a national election were held now.

Most interestingly of all, however, is that only 59.4 percent of respondents gave a concrete answer, with the remaining over-forty-percent still undecided.
