The internal struggles of the social democrats – the exodus of the voters and the fight for the heir position


Since the last parliamentary elections (a bit more than a year ago), almost 25% of the social democrat voters have left the party. While the incredible election success last year was due to Mette Frederiksen’s performance during the years of pandemic and crisis, the voters have gotten “tired” of seeing Mette at the helm

  • Why? The removal of the national holiday (Great Prayer Day), the support for tax reduction while the municipalities are crumbling under the welfare cost, and the closed room deals. 
  • Despite the voter exodus, Socialdemokratiet is still the most supported party in Denmark. That is because it is the only party with a significant core voter base and a lack of real alternatives for social democrat voters. 
  • Who will lead Socialdemokratiet and maybe Denmark, after Mette Frederiksen? Finance minister Nicolai Wammen or Justice minister Peter Hummelgaard
