STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Support for the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats has surged ahead of an election in September to the point where it could be hard for the government or opposition to form a working majority without their support, a poll showed on Tuesday.

Immigration has dominated debate ahead of the Sept. 9 vote, which has helped the Sweden Democrats whose support increased to 18.5 percent from 14.8 percent in November, according to the poll by the government's Statistics Office. tmsnrt.rs/2LmSZFD

That rise echoes the increase in support for other European populist parties but the Sweden Democrats and its leader Jimmie Akesson have found it hard to gain influence because the party’s roots is in the country’s fringe neo-Nazi movement.


Both the center-left governing block and the opposition have ruled out a deal with the Sweden Democrats.

We've read and watched the news of Muslim immigration overwhelming Sweden. But how bad is it really? See this firsthand account from documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz, who shows why increased Muslim immigration is leading to a spike in rapes and other violent crime.
