Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Sverigedemokraterna doing much better than 2006, doubled their vote (so far) to 6%.

Socialdemokraterna is running 6% behind 2006 and almost 10% behind 2002.  They are still the largest party but no longer the commanding party.  

Miljöpartiet de gröna is doing a modicum (1.7%) better than 2006 but aren't making-up the ground lost by the Social Democrats.

The big winner is Moderata Samlingspartiet gaining 7%.  But with the losses to the Center and Christian Democrat parties the Alliance is only a little over 2% their 2006 total.

So far, the 2010 turnout is 6.9% below 2006  (74.1% versus 81.1%.)  Which is ... interesting; in the US the lower the turn-out the better the Right does so they have gotten rather good at depressing the vote.  Wonder if Alliance has 'taken a lesson' from the GOP.

and do the Grand Coalition thing. Suicidal, but historically apt.

And they might just be clueless enough to to it.

If the bigot SD vote stays around 7% I don't think Alliance can form a government without them.
