Among the supporters of the two parties, government support was decisive. Only 5% of Left Green Movement supporters do not support the government and 8% of Social Democratic Alliance supporters.

The difference between the sexes was minute, but women appear to be more pleased with the government than men. A total of 45% of the women said that they supported the government but 41% of the men.

800 people were contacted last night. The question they were asked was “Do you support the present government?” 87% chose to answer the question.
