Socialists take over Labour again in polls

The Socialist Party (SP) has recovered its popularity and once again overtaken the Labour party, according to the latest weekly internet poll by Maurice de Hond.

The SP would win 29 seats in parliament if an election was held now (it actually has 25) while Labour’s score would be 27 (in reality it has 33). The SP overtook Labour in mid-March but Labour had managed to scrabble back up over the last few weeks.
The other parties remain more or less stable in the latest poll with the coalition parties (Christian Democrat, Labour and ChristenUnie) scoring 72 seats (compared to the 80 they actually have in parliament).
