The political course resumed with a slight rise in the PSOE and with a collapse of the PP, which left almost three points in the barometer of the Center for Sociological Research (CIS) for September. The study maintains with hardly any changes to Vox, gives a small rise to United We Can and collects a recovery of Citizens of almost one point.
The barometer published this Thursday increases the Socialists from 28.6% in July to 29.6%. Those of Pedro Sánchez thus delves into the recovery of their voting intention since they fell to 27.4% in June, their lowest figure and which placed them below the results obtained in the November 2019 elections.
In contrast, the PP experiences a significant drop. In July they obtained 23.4% of the votes, after months of increases – almost five points – and stabilized in these data on voting intention. However, the September barometer reflects that Pablo Casado’s formation suffers one of its worst collapses: it remains at 20.5%, almost three points less and slightly below its 10N results.
That rise is not made profitable by Vox, as it had happened in previous barometers. The extreme right went from 13.6% in July to 13.8%, a change of two tenths that allows them to harvest one of the best data on voting intention in the last barometers.
Unidos Podemos remains in fourth position and is recovering slightly from the collapse it suffered in July. That barometer placed the party, already without Pablo Iglesias at the helm, in a vote intention of 10.6%, returning them to the worst data from previous studies. Now the formation manages to recover seven tenths and rise to 11.3%, a small increase but one that allows it to distance itself from the results it achieved in the last elections.
Finally, Ciudadanos, installed in a constant fluctuation in the CIS, obtains 6.5% of the vote estimate according to the CIS. This represents an increase of one percentage point compared to July but it still keeps them far from their best data in these barometers. Although, yes, it brings them closer to the results of the last general elections.
Regarding the valuation of leaders, Yolanda Díaz continues as the policy that scores the best harvest, although it falls one tenth and her distance with Pedro Sánchez is shortened. The Minister of Labor obtains 4.6, compared to the Prime Minister who rises to 4.5. Behind them is the leader of Más País, Íñigo Errejón, who gets a note of 4.2.
Already below is the president of Ciudadanos, Inés Arrimadas (3.6) and the leader of the PP, Pablo Casado (3.4). The leader of Vox, Santiago Abascal, again stands as in every barometer as the worst valued political leader with a score of 2.7.
