Almost 34 percent would vote for the Conservatives (H) if an election is called today, an increase of 2.4 percent over October’s, a fresh poll by broadcaster NRK shows.

Progress (FrP) voters are leaving from their Party, the largest in parliament today, in considerable numbers.

More surprising, perhaps, is 15 percent of Labour (Ap) voters are abandoning the Leftist port side of their political tanker in favour of starboard.  This is despite Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg’s continuing popularity at the helm.

With 110 to 59 parliamentary mandates in favour of a solid Right-Wing majority over today’s tri-partite coalition, Conservative leader Erna Solberg has some reason to smile. She stresses that cross-Party cooperation is still very much on the agenda, however.

NRK political commentator Magnus Takvam informs his employer “moderate Labour voters don’t buy their Party’s story about what a true blue government would lead to.”

“These voters don’t believe Erna Solberg will follow an extremist policy, so Labour’s message doesn’t get through to them,” he adds.

“There’s no doubt we’re not doing well enough,” says Labour Secretary General Raymond Johansen, stressing the Party now faces a daily fight for voters if things are to improve.

October-November month-on-month changes (Left to Right) are as follows:
