54% of Spaniards would dissolve the coalition with UP if the ‘yes is yes’ does not change

Date: March 28, 2023 Time: 08:19:18

More than half of the voters (53.8%) consider that the PSOE should break the government coalition with United We Can if the purple formation does not approve the reform of the Law of ‘Only yes is yes’. It is one of the main conclusions of the Barometer prepared by DYM for Information. carried out with a universe of 1,003 respondents between the 15th and 19th of this month of February. The survey also reveals that this thesis is handled mainly by socialist voters, since one intends to approve the majority partner. Only 14.2% of UP voters would opt for this scenario of rupture.

A vast majority of Spaniards, 76.7% of the population, believes that the shortening of sentences caused by the application of the current law will have negative electoral consequences for the government parties. Meanwhile, 50.7% consider that the reform has been carried out to avoid these negative electoral consequences and only half of the voters of the PSOE and UP believe that the main reason for giving the green light to the new text has been to correct the errors contained in the law.

43.5% of those surveyed share the responsibility equally between both parties for having had to reform the recently approved text due to the shortening that has caused the review of some sentences. Although, in general, a greater degree of responsibility is attributed to the UP than to the PSOE.

Sumar and the general elections

On the Sumar platform, with which the current second vice president and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, plans to run in the next general elections, there is a preference among leftist voters. 26.1% of Spaniards would prefer to vote for Sumar, while 8% would opt for Podemos with Irene Montero at the helm if the two alternatives are presented to the elections separately.

This difference is accentuated between the progressive electorate (of the center and left), which would give greater support to Sumar. Among UP voters themselves, 47.7% would vote for Sumar before Podemos. Socialist and center-left voters considering that Sumar’s program is closer to the party led by Pedro Sánchez.

In what has to do with the evaluation of the performance of the Government of Spain, this increases to 4.1, on a scale of 0 to 10, being in line with that obtained in the months of September and October. PSOE and UP voters are the ones who best value the performance of the Government of Spain, with 6.0 and 5.4 points, respectively, although their perception has worsened somewhat in relation to the previous wave.

In what has to do with the evaluation of political leaders, all fail, positioning Yolanda Díaz (4.1), Alberto Núñez Feijóo (4.1) and Isabel Díaz Ayuso (4.0) as the best valued. Next, are the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez (3.8), Íñigo Errejón (3.4) and Inés Arrimadas (3.2). In the last positions are Santiago Abascal (2.6) and Irene Montero (2.5).

The February barometer continues with the upward trend of the PP, which once again exceeds its all-time high since 2020, with 32.4% of the intention to vote. In parallel, the PSOE resists, staying at the levels of the last waves with 27.1% of support. The strength of the two big parties contrasts with the continuous downward trend in the last year of both Vox and Unidas Podemos.

In any case, and despite the growth of the PP, mainly motivated by the drop in Vox in recent months, the PSOE is holding out supported by three factors: the improvement in the valuation of Pedro Sánchez and the Government in general, and a fall in the UP’s intention to vote In the actual formation of forces, the sum of the PP and VOX would ensure the absolute majority of seats.
