Also, I read elsewhere that the SVP's popularity has dropped significantly (from 30% down to 23%) since the last election.
I just read L'UDC chute dans les sondages in the French version of SwissInfo, nothing in English, but there is a German version (Google translate confirmed what the article was about, not a very felicitous translation to say the least) Umfrage: SVP muss Federn lassen.

Of the roughly six percentage points they lost the major government parties got about half, and the new secessionist party got half. The latter is hardly enough to make them a viable force nationally.
