Support for the Left-Green Movement has increased by 5 percent since the October 29 parliamentary election in Iceland, according to a Gallup poll, published yesterday. Support for the Progressive Party and the Reform Party has diminished since the election, RÚV reports.

The Left-Green Movement receives close to 21 percent support in the poll, up from almost 16 percent in the election.

The Independence Party remains the country’s largest party with 28 percent support, or one percent less than in the election.

The Pirate Party enjoys 13.7 percent support, compared with 14.5 in the election.

The Progressive Party measures at 9 percent, down from 11.5 percent in the election.

The Reform Party gets 8.9 percent support in the poll, down from 10.5 in the election.

Bright Future receives 8.6 percent in the poll, up from 7.2 percent in the election.

The Social Democratic Alliance measures at 5.3 percent in the poll, slightly less than in the election.

Three percent of respondents say they support the People’s Party, while another 3 percent support other parties. Six percent did not reveal their opinion, and almost 7 percent state they would return an empty ballot or not vote at all if there were an election now.

The number of participants was 5,207, and the response rate 57.9 percent.
