Sweden will hold a general election on 9 September, alongside regional and municipal elections. Anders Hellström assesses the campaign so far, which has focused to a large extent on support for the anti-immigration Sweden Democrats. He suggests that the framing of the campaign around the policies of the Sweden Democrats, coupled with the other parties' lack of a positive, alternative vision for the country, goes some way toward explaining the current polling.
