Support for Swedish monarchy continues to fall

Both Svenska Dagbladet (external link) and Dagens Nyheter (external link) report that a new survey conducted by the SOM Institute (Society, Opinion, Media) at the University of Gothenburg has found that 56 % of Swedes want to retain the Swedish monarchy whereas 22 % want to abolish it.
This poll was conducted last autumn and is apparently done annually since 1995. In 1995 67 % were in favour of monarchy and 11 % supported the republic. In 2004 the numbers were 68 % versus 15 % and last year 63 % against 17 %.
