Yle's monthly tracking poll suggests that the SDP is the best-supported political party in Finland, with 21.1 percent of respondents saying they back the party. The poll found that 20.4 percent of those answering said they'd support the Centre Party, while 18.9 percent were National Coalition backers.

The Finns Party, which is the third grouping in the government along with the NCP and Centre, was backed by 8.5 percent of respondents and is the sixth-best supported party in the poll. It's support remains stable from last month, but is well down on the 19.1 percent it achieved in the 2015 parliamentary election.

Pollsters from Taloustutkimus interviewed 2,927 people during November for the poll, and 57.3 percent of them gave their party allegiance. The margin of error is +- 2 percentage points.
