I think it’s bad and sad.
These were the words Jonas Gahr Store used about voters’ judgment of his party in the polls a year and a half ago. At the time, Labor averaged just over 21 percent, according to the online polling site.
He added in the same interview with TV 2: “Trigvey told me that if you and I walk the streets, and we both fall, you’re a clumsy and I’m famous.”
Well, after eight months in government together, Jonas and Tryggve have come face to face, and they both seem somewhat clumsy.
The smoke is about to subside After the first parliamentary session with the Store government at its head. In June, Labor averaged… just over 21 percent.
Fixed course there is, that is. Or “constant management in relation to the course,” said Store.
Tears dried up and bad opinion polls took hold. Numbers speeches Stor doesn’t dare describe “bad and sad” anymore. At the same time, it would mean some kind of promise from him that they would ascend to the old heights again, when the Labor Party was referred to as the eagle in Norwegian politics that soared high above everyone else.
No, now is new times. The eagle has a dawa.
However, Labor does not seem to be a bird rising from the ashes. They are rather suffering cruelty of death Death hardening.
The Center Party, for its part, has slipped from polls of over 20 percent to five in some opinion polls. Although Widom had enough to face himself, and shouldn’t be blamed for all the misery that Labor was currently experiencing, he fired the last shot at Eagle. Now it comes in full recoil.
When politicians and political parties fight, There are often three reasons for this:
- They don’t solve the problems they promised to do something about
- Other parties provide better solutions to problems
- The problems have changed since the last election
The government’s retreat is a toxic combination of all three.
Widom raised expectations in the year prior to the parliamentary elections. He eventually fell into some kind of childish ecstasy at the very good Center Party polls. Now there are no limits to how much it can grow.
At the same time, Stoer benefited from a political partner who created space for an alternative to Solberg’s government.
But although promises of a golden age for “common people” were possible in the election campaign, it is now almost impossible to implement them.
Through the crisis of power, both parties grow left and right for the government. Rødt and SV both look at the top 10 in opinion polls and are increasingly heading towards a shaky government. Conservatives are back to the level they were before Erna Solberg ate sushi with too many guests at Jello.
Not least that reality was brutally struck. The war in Ukraine and its handling led to the suspension of many electoral government promises. Instead of the government keeping its promises, the SV managed to fix the steak in negotiations in Parliament. Thus it becomes clear to everyone who has won.
The death rigors of the Labor Party mean that it is struggling to deal with these changes. It seems like it’s been a long time since the Labor leadership was able to open the window for Youngstorget to see what the people mean, as former Party Secretary Haakon Lee seems to have the ability to do.
Instead, Labor appears to be locked into one A world view where the Center Party is the most important bellworm and competitor in Norwegian politics.
Amidst all the problems they face, Støre Senterpartiet lets the district decide what you want. They are allowed to roam freely by fulfilling their electoral promises, completely untouched by political reality.
The government’s unpopularity means it is poised on a knife edge and has little room for error. When the case for Kristiansand’s possible forced dissolution explodes in the face of Storre, it is evidence that the government is “easy to deal with” as much as the case is being handled poorly. A very popular government managed to weather this storm earlier.
It is almost ironic that the Labor Party It continued to fall in the polls at the same time that Stour got rid of what many thought was his biggest problem, the Foggy Prince Seal. Or his penchant for mental transcendence and accurate answers, as it may also be called. There was a strong dose of conservative spin in this poster, but Støre didn’t make it difficult for them. settled quickly.
As the Center Party began to race like a rocket at the polls and attract more and more Labor voters, Store had to choose. It honed the party more clearly as an interest party for some groups of voters and gradually reminded the Labor Party of the 1970s and 1980s more than they did during Jens Stoltenberg’s tenure as party leader and prime minister.
He’s the clearest Store we see as prime minister than the party leader he was two years ago. But he is still not comfortable with this role. Støre seems to have chosen a direction he doesn’t believe in, and in which he doesn’t at least have credibility.
Storr Urban International suddenly became the leader of the old Social Democracy party and head of government for a reversible and retroactive government. It’s an important change that didn’t work out. The party almost fell under his leadership only.
Thus Støre and Vedum became a problem for the government and for their parties. Political strategists cannot be measured only by how high they are at the top. If it crashes shortly after that, it’s not that impressive.
Note: Sonder Hansmark was elected as the third deputy in Parliament for the Liberal Party. Now working as a commentator for Dagbladet, he has resigned from the party and will meet in this case as an independent representative.
