Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would say because the predominantly right wing media has hammered the red-greens on the narrative front, while giving a free pass to much of the current ministers.

Four years ago the narrative was that the alliance overcame obstacle after obstacle, reaching ever new compromises and finding common ground while prime minister Person was old and could not answer where the jobs would come from. This year with almost exactly the same unemployment (actually, I think it is a bit higher) every time the red-greens has released something the focus has been on what was not there, ie on what they disagree on. The governments failure on unemployment is hardly mentioned.

I bet the soc-dem party strategists bitterly regret that their predecessors closed down the soc-dem press in the crises of the early 90ies.
