This is a summary of Politico’s and FT projections of the voting today in Denmark:
Denmark – The Projections
If turnout of 56.32% is maintained in this vote, Politico predicts the S(A) will beat second-placed Venstre(V) by 173,211 votes. That is 9.29% of the 1,864,635 expected non-voters.
The S(A) is expected to win 5 seats. Total number of seats is 13.
Denmark – The Issues
Denmark votes in national elections less than two weeks after the European polls, meaning that EU issues are being overshadowed by local matters.
Support for the nationalist Danish People’s Party has fallen to a seven-year low amid signs that voters are growing less anxious about the number of immigrants in their country.
The Eurosceptic and populist Danish People’s party (O) – which has flirted with both the centre-right and centre-left nationally – is doing poorly in the polls, which are led by the traditional group of power, the Social Democrats.
