Sweden govt set for majority despite far-right -poll

 * DN/Synovate poll: govt 49.8 pct vs opposition 40.9 pct
 * Centre-right would have parliament majority
 * Anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats likely to get seats
 
 STOCKHOLM, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Sweden's centre-right
government has a solid lead over the Social Democrat-led
opposition ahead of Sunday's elections and would be able to form
a majority government, an opinion poll showed on Wednesday.
 A DN/Synovate poll of 1,585 voters gave Prime Minister
Fredrik Reinfeldt's Alliance coalition 49.8 percent against 40.9
percent for the Red-Green opposition bloc, led by Social
Democrat leader Mona Sahlin.
 The poll showed the far-right Sweden Democrats, who push a
anti-immigrant agenda, backed by 7.5 percent of voters, the
highest figure in any survey tracked by Reuters in recent months
and well above the threshold to win seats in parliament.
 But centre-left opposition weakness in the poll, carried out
between Sept. 2 and Sept. 13, means Reinfeldt would still be
able to form a majority government and avoid a hung parliament.
