December polls confirm coalition parties 1st/2nd and Far-Right in decline

The on-going financial scandal in the State of Salzburg has not damaged the standing of the SPÖ nationally with the Party remaining first in this weekend’s three polls.

My running average of the most recent five polls shows that the Far-Right parties (FPÖ & BZÖ) have lost 9% points since January 2013. The FPÖ now firmly back in third place and the BZÖ continuing to unlikely to secure the 4% needed to secure seats in parliament at the general election next year.

SPO 27.00% 28.60% -1.60%
