How did Sweden get to the right of the US on do many issues?

For example:
Sweden has clearly changed in the last 20 years under the governance of parties of both the Left and the Right. In the 1990s, the public sector grabbed 68 percent of the country’s gross domestic product. Today it is on track to account for 50 percent of GDP, because economic growth has dramatically outstripped the growth of government spending, which has increased at an annual rate of only 1.9 percent over the last decade. Sweden scrapped inheritance taxes, wealth taxes, and most property taxes. It cut income taxes and corporate taxes, and, as a result, disposable income has risen by almost 20 percent in the last eight years of the ruling conservative coalition.

The biggest area of failure is letting in way too many unassimilated immigrants which has caused unemployment to balloon. Sound familiar?

So the anti immigrant party just won 13 percent making the right win  52 percent to the left's 44. If they can form a government.
