69 % support Swedish monarchy

Dagens Nyheter (external link) reports on an opinion poll carried out by the polling institute Demoskop for the newspaper Expressen which shows that 69 % think Sweden should remain a monarchy. Demoskop has asked 1,381 Swedes between 13 and 17 November. When they did the same poll this spring, before the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel, 63 % supported the monarchy.
In other recent opinion polls on the Swedish monarchy 74 % supported it in a poll made by SIFO two days after the royal wedding, while 58 % were in favour when asked by Novus Opinion in April and 56 % supported the monarchy in a poll made by the SOM Institute at the University of Gothenburg last autumn. In other words it seems the negative trend has been turned by the royal wedding, which was to be expected.
