Yesterday an opinion poll about support for the Swedish monarchy was presented at a seminar hosted by the SOM Institute at the University of Gothenburg.
The poll showed that the percentage which is completely in favour of the monarchy has fallen from 52 % in 1995 to 42 % today. If one counts in those who are positive, but less certain, the monarchy enjoys the support of 63 % (down from 67 % in 1995).
The number of people who are absolutely in favour of a republic has nearly doubled since 1995 - up from 5 to 9 %. If less certain republicans are included, 17 % of the populace count as republicans, compared to 11 % fourteen years ago.
Swedish Television (SVT) has a short article on the poll:
