It also says that only 51% want the King to stay on the throne and twice as many want him to abdicate than in February, possibly due to the new book.

There is another way to look at those stats. The people opposed to monarchy have also become less in those numbers. Its the unsure precentage that has grown.

Stats can be interpreted in almost any way. I was just giving a summary of the article (as accurately as Google Translate allows).

It means that most of the people want the king to step down in favor of Victoria.

From todays Aftonbladet:
Who is the best head of state among the royal family:
60 % think Victoria is best(70 % of the women, 49 % men)
25 % thinks the king.(19 % of the women, but 31 % of the men)
9 % are unsure
3 % think Carl-Philip
Madeleine, Silvia and Daniel all get 1 %

You do you like the most
56 % favors Victoria
18 % are unsure
10 % like Madeleine the most(almost double % of males vs females)
8 % likes the king
4 % likes Silvia most
3 % likes Carl-Philip most
Just 1 % likes Daniel the most

Well I would imagine that Victoria has had more public face time because of the wedding this year.

And frankly, it does appear that she does a lot of engagements. Not saying that the King and Queen don't but Victoria is the future and seen as such. Which isn't a bad thing IMO.

Why not post all the results from the survey?

The other charts shows 27 % would like the King to turn over role to Victoria within 5 years, 21 % within 10 years and 30% not until he dies. Very different results compared to above.

I find it odd that Carl-Philip got a better survey result than his sister, mother, and brother-in-law. Wouldn't Madeleine and Silvia get higher percentages because they actually do more?

Well, choosing a favourite person is a very subjective thing and doesn't necessarily correlate with exposure. Maybe more people identify with CP than the others?

I wonder of Sofia has something to do with Carl Phillip being one of the least liked.

I think if you had to name just one you like the most, there are simply people in SRF who overshadow him. It's possible that if the question would have been for example "Name all the people you like from SRF", the result would have been different.

As the question was about who is the best head of state, neither Silvia, nor Daniel can be head of state of Sweden, they are only married into the royal family. As for Carl Philip having more votes than Madeleine, well he is the second in line after Victoria, while Madeleine is the third in line, a fact I would guess most Swedes are aware of.

The SOM-institute has revealed the results for this year. The popularity for the monarchy is now at 53 percent.

36 percent say that they have large trust in the monarchy.

Oh dear, that's not very much, is it? Though I guess there will be a proportion who are indifferent.

Interesting result, not surprising though. Are there also numbers for the indiferent people and people who do not support the monarchy?

I really hope the numbers will be closely analyzed by SRF. If I'm not mistaken the numbers are dropping constantly in the last years. All the "bonus points" they could have got for Victoria's and Daniel's wedding were simply lost after the King's book was published, the document about Queens father was aired, and people started to slowly get fed up with Carl Philip's and Madeleine's work ethics and also personal lifes. And the way the comm. department handled those things was also not the best. There is a saying that little children and animals can make everything look better, I'm not sure if it will work in this case though.

Well, 'little children' will be forthcoming hopefully. It has been a bad year for the SRF apart from Victoria and Daniel. They had better remain scandal-free for the foreseeable future.

I am looking at the numbers now:
Abolish the monarchy was 19 before and after the book was published.
Its the unsurecollum that is bigger, from 19 to 27
