- The vice-president of the Government, Yolanda Díaz, is the best valued by Podemos voters.
- Santiago Abascal is the leader best valued by his voters (8.1), while Ione Belarra is the only one who does not reach the pass mark (4.8).
Despite the fact that he has not yet taken the baton of the PP, or perhaps precisely because of this, Alberto Núñez Feijóo will inaugurate his time at the head of the main opposition party as the leader best valued by Spaniards.
Although he does not reach the pass mark (4.6), the president of the Xunta de Galicia obtains notable levels of perception for his future voters (7.4) and a pass among Ciudadanos voters (5.8), while for those of Vox he is close to a pass mark (4.9). The efforts of the PP to consolidate its next president, who has managed to stop the bleeding of votes after the fateful February of his party, the departure of Pablo Casado and the division within the Government derived from the war in Ukraine, seem to have an effect.
This is what emerges from the latest DYM poll for 20minutos, where it is also surprising that Ciudadanos voters give a better rating to Feijóo than to his party’s candidate, Inés Arrimadas (5.1). The same happens with the second best rated political leader, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, who is only one tenth of a point behind the Galician president (4.5) and is also perceived more favorably by orange voters (5.7) than Arrimadas. In the case of the president of Madrid, moreover, her popularity soars in the face of the Vox electorate, gaining the same acceptance that she maintains with her voters (7.6).
On the other hand, the president of Vox, Santiago Abascal, is the party leader most distinguished by his co-religionists (8.1), but one of the worst valued in general terms, with a score of 3. Ione Belarra, secretary general of Podemos, is the least valued (4.8). In fact, the Minister of Social Rights and Agenda 2030 is the only leader not minimally endorsed by her electorate, the same voters who have pushed the second vice-president, Yolanda Díaz, to the third drawer of the ranking of the best perceived by the bulk of the population (4.2) and by her own (7.2).
Pedro Sánchez improves his valuation (3.9) with respect to the previous month, although he continues to lag behind Díaz. The socialist voter raises almost to a remarkable level (6.8) the performance of the President of the Government, also approved by those of Unidas Podemos (5.5).
As for the more purely ideological aspect, Diaz Ayuso (7.8) is the favorite of those citizens consulted who position themselves more to the right. Above Abascal (7.5) and, significantly, above Feijóo (6.4). In the other trench, left-wing voters prefer Vice-President Yolanda Díaz (6.4), above the President of the Government and the leader of Más Páis, Íñigo Errejón, who have the same score (5.6).
27.5% feel closer to the PP with Feijóo
The arrival of Feijóo on the seventh floor of Genova, 13 means for the PP greater ability to seduce the center and right-wing voter: up to 56.2% of the PP electorate and 55.4% of Ciudadanos say they feel closer to the next directive, the one appointed after the extraordinary congress in Seville on the first weekend of April, than to Pablo Casado and Teodoro García Egea, defenestrated by the party. In general, 27.5% of those consulted say they feel closer, 49% feel exactly the same and 13.6% say they feel even more distant from the PP’s proposals with the change of helm.
In addition to the good perception of Feijóo by Ciudadanos voters, mentioned above, we must add another piece of information: only 2.5% of the support at the ballot box of the liberals are somewhat more distant from the PP with the change, while 55.4% and 38% say they feel closer or the same, respectively, with Feijóo at the head of the center-right. Feeling closer to the new PP candidate than farther away, the perception of Vox does not change significantly. Therefore, according to the figures, Ciudadanos will have to attract its electorate so that Feijóo, a week before officially landing, does not deplete -even more- his voting ground.
