Almost half of Spaniards support a PSOE-PP pact to face the crisis

The PSOE recovers ground after the summer and starts the last political year before the wave of elections in 2023 with an improvement in its electoral expectations. The Socialists improve their intention to vote by 1.5 points between July and September, and would reach a 26.7% support according to the barometer prepared by DYM for the Henneo group. This improvement slightly closes the gap with the PP, which continues to maintain a 31% vote intentionalthough it does not prevent the absolute majority of the right in the event that the popular ones agree with Vox (15.2%), which continues its process of attrition with a slight loss of votes (-0.1%).

The lack of clarity of the future of the parties to the left of the PSOE also penalizes their electoral options. So much United We Can as More Country again register falls in their direct intention to vote, the first of half a point and the seconds of a tenth. In this way, UP would receive 10.4% of the votes, while Íñigo Errejón’s party would receive 3%. Ciudadanos continues its free fall while advancing in its refoundation plan and would barely have the support of 2.4% of Spaniards.

The survey shows the opinion of the Spaniards after the debate held in the Senate between Sánchez and Feijóo in which they confronted their measures to tackle the energy crisis facing Spain and Europe this winter. Proof of this is the support of 46.3% of the population for a possible pact between the PSOE and the PP to agree on the measures necessary to deal with energy and economic problems, an idea rejected, on the other hand, by 26.4% of those surveyed. The voters of PP, Cs and Vox are the ones who are most favorable to the idea launched by Feijóo of reaching a temporary pact between the two major parties in exchange for the Sánchez government ceasing to rely on United We Can and other minority parties.

On the other hand, the results suggest that the follow-up by the citizens was considerably less than the media impact it had, since 46.1% of those surveyed say that it aroused little or no interest in them. Among those who did see it, 32.9% valued it positively, with special satisfaction among PSOE voters; while those of Vox who lead the negative opinions among the 23.5% who did not see it as appropriate.

These trends are in line with consideration for leaders, where Alberto Núñez Feijóo (PP) and Yolanda Díaz (UP) are once again the best valued with 4 points out of 10, although in the case of the Galician, he continues to lose support among voters located in the ideological “center”. The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, is surpassed by one tenth by the President of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso (3.8 versus 3.9, respectively).

On the contrary, the worst rated is again Santiago Abascal (Vox), with 2.6 points and only approved by its voters. He is followed by the secretary general of Podemos, Ione Belarra (2.6) and the spokesperson for Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas (3.1), who even fails among his voters with a 4.9.

The valuation of the government has risen two tenths in this latest barometer over the previous wave and reaches 4 points out of 10, an improvement in the assessment driven by left and center voters, mainly from PSOE and UP, but also from Ciudadanos, who have improved their perception by six tenths after a summer conditioned by the implementation of the first plan of energy saving measures.

Lastly, the Polibarometer for the month of September also asks Spaniards for their opinion on the possibility of pardon the former president of the Andalusian Government, José Antonio Griñán. The majority response is contrary to the Government’s idea, with 70.8% against the pardon, compared to 11.4% who are in favor.

This new wave of the Political, Economic and Social Polibarometer, corresponding to the month of September 2022, is prepared by the DYM Market Research Institute. The sample consists of 1,007 interviews carried out in Spanish territory with people over 18 years of age between September 14 and 18, conducted online using the CAWI method. The sampling error for a confidence level of 95.5% is ±3.2%.
