Denmark’s center-left parties would command a solid majority in parliament if elections were held today, according to a poll that showed growing support for the so-called red bloc opposition.

The Norstat poll published on Friday by Altinget estimated that the Social Democrats and their allies would obtain 98 seats in the parliament in Copenhagen. The center-right blue bloc, headed by the Liberal Party of Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen, would obtain 77 seats.
