Voter support for the National Coalition Party has continued to tumble, finds a poll by Helsingin Sanomat. No more than 17.4 per cent of people surveyed between October and November said that they would vote for the National Coalition if the parliamentary elections were held now. The vote share of the right-wing party has not been as low in parliamentary elections since the early 1970s.
