Les sondages sont bons pour la coalition des socialistes de gauche et du centre au pouvoir et mauvais pour le parti populiste ( qui s'appelle "Parti du Progrès" (sic)).

Government popular againNorway's 'red-green' majority coalition of the Labour, Socialist Left and Center parties has regained its popularity in the polls.
The Norstat poll carried out for NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) is the first majority result for the alliance in months. The result also indicates a trend of poor results for the populist Progress Party (FrP).
The FrP fell 4.3 percent points from the previous August survey, to 21.6 percent. The dominant Labour Party advanced 3.2 percent points to 33.7 percent.
"We have become too relaxed. The grass roots, the elected representatives and spokesmen have all been in hibernation due to earlier, excellent polls," FrP deputy chairman Per Sandberg told NRK.
Sandberg played down the importance of the poll, despite it being the third consecutive Norstat survey with a sharp Progress Party drop.
"I think people see that this government is carrying out the platform it promised to deliver; day care centers, elderly care, schools," said Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.
