AN OPINION POLL by Alma Media and Iltalehti shows that the Social Democratic Party has consolidated its status as the most popular political party in coronavirus-era Finland.
Support for the Social Democrats, the poll found, surged by three percentage points to 24.1 per cent between March and April. The Finns Party, by contrast, saw its approval rating drop from 20.1 to 18.8 per cent, after dominating virtually all opinion polls before the pandemic.
