Policy Network | New comparison poll shows how vulnerable and ideologically staid European social democracy as a political movement currently is.
Policy Network have published a new opinion poll tracker of Europe’s social democratic parties:
"After the bruising defeats inflicted upon social democrats in Sweden, the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and the historic slump in the European elections of June 2009, it allows viewers to look back over time and compare and contrast the changing political landscapes in 17 countries.
Commenting on the latest comparative polling figures from across Europe, Policy Network director Olaf Cramme says: “There is little sign that the centre-left is regaining the confidence of the electorate, let alone presenting itself as a competent contender for power. If social democrats step back from their own national focus and look at the bigger picture, they will realise just how vulnerable and ideologically staid European social democracy as a political movement currently is. Changes in personality; tactical re-positioning and the desperate search for new electoral alliances are not doing the trick.”
