A newest poll shows that King Harald is on top of it: 91% believe he does a good job, only 1% believe that he is doing a bad job. Queen Sonja gets 80%, CP Haakon 85% and CP Mette-Marit 63%.

75% believe that King Harald should not abdicate, while 13% say that CP Haakon should take over.

16% percent believe the Princess Märtha Louise does a good job, while 36% believe she does a bad job as a representative of the Royal House. Her husband Ari Behn gets 72% of respondents who think he is doing a bad job.
Royal expert Kjell Arne Totland thinks this has a natural explanation. 'Measurements like this are really always very unfair to the couple Behn. The two are part of the extended royal family, but they are not considered as part of what is often referred to as The Royal Family.'

1138 people were asked by polling institute Ipsos MMI.

thank you fairy tale

Im not sure how serious the poll is,
but looking at the #s for the cp couple, there is a huge difference,
85% compared to 63% for MM

When you compare the numbers with last year's MMI poll, they went a very little down for King and Queen, a little bit more for CP Haakon and quite much for CP Mette-Marit. The Behns, well...I think everybody can imagine why.

I also don't know how representative this poll is, at least they give us the number how many people were asked.

Comparison 2012 - 2013 (doing a good job for Norway):
King Harald: 93% - 91%
Queen Sonja: 81% - 80%
CP Haakon: 89% - 85%
CP Mette-Marit: 75% - 63%
Princess Märtha Louise: 25% - 16%

Ari Behn: 57% that he does a bad job - 72%

Im not quite familiar with the Norwegian Royal Family, but as far as I have seen those Behns are not very well liked, I am aware of the strange attitudes of the Princess, but I just don't have enough information to understand why her husband is stongly rejected. Could anyone be so kind as to explain this?
