"the Replica from the social Democrats' election assessment team on the elections in 2018"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"REPLICA. On Tuesday I presented, together with the social Democrats ' election assessment team in our final report on the elections in 2018. It is gratifying that the report has already contributed to a discussion on the social Democrats ' future direction of travel and how the party should tackle the societal challenges it faces. "
"In a debate article in Aftonbladet on march 19, mean Nasra Ali, Sören Juvas and Ulf Bjereld that the reasons for the social democrats, took a restrictive position on migration in the election year of 2018 would only have been tactical. "
"Further, the mean of the contributors to the party's language fanned the flames of distrust and xenophobia, and the party chose to say it it was thought that the voters wanted to hear but with a harder rhetoric. "
"the Fact is that the social democrats changed their immigration policy line already in december 2015. The change was made not to satisfy public opinion, but because it had become obvious that the current migration policy was no longer sustainable. "
"the News in may 2018, meant that the changes in migration policy would remain in place also after the elections in 2018. "
"This aroused strong reactions in some groups in the party and it became apparent that the then-just over two years old, the re-orientation of migration policies not omfamnats of the entire organization. "
"the Authors rightly points out that the Socialists' support in the late autumn low-around 30 per cent. The decline in opinion was not started in connection with the pressträffen in may 2018, but already in november 2017. "
"It was due this fall on the discussion of the unaccompanied minor and that the proposal of the temporary gymnasielagen meant a deviation from the clear line of the party held in switzerland. Another important explanation is that during the autumn of the same year announced that the retirement age would be raised. "
"the social democrats lost electoral support gradually until the summer of 2018. Despite a significant rise at the end of the electoral process did not recover the party to the drop in public support it enjoyed in the autumn of 2017. "
"We believe that the social democrats did the right thing when you left the clear message on the future of migration policy in good time before the election. It was probably also because of the cooperation between governments with the Greens difficult to do it earlier than what was the case. "
"the Main purpose to analyze the previous term of office and the election campaign is to draw lessons for future elections, and trials. "
"One of our main conclusions is that it is of crucial importance for the party to maintain a straight and clear policies on issues that are central to the voters, in this case, the issue of migration. "
"another key conclusion is that policy changes of the magnitude that the re-orientation of the migration policy constitute the must be allowed the time and need to be discussed and anchored firmly among the party members. "
"nArtikelförfattarna mean that the social democrats themselves contributed to an unfavorable agenda by the information you left in the spring in the issues like migration, integration and labour immigration. "
"Our sense is that it rather created the space to debate the other, and the social democratic party, more favorable, areas of expertise when uncertainties about these difficult questions had been eliminated. "
"in Conclusion, we fully agree with the authors that the social democrats achieved an impressive final sprint of the election campaign. "
"We also agree that the social democrats Sweden's largest party not only needs to adapt to, but also can lead and influence public opinion. "
"This accomplishes the party, however, not by appeasing the answers but clear and straight answers on the issues that are most important to voters. "
