The July barometer published this Thursday by the CIS indicates that only three of the set of 22 members of the council of ministers receive the approval of the Spanish. Specifically, the one that receives the highest score is the person in charge of Defence, Margarita Robles, with a 5.46 out of 10, followed by the first two vice presidents, held by Nadia Calviño and Yolanda Díaz, who obtain a score of 5.38. and 5.17 respectively. On the contrary, the least valued ministers are the two most visible faces of Unidas Podemos, Ione Belarra and Irene Montero, who will not run in the next general elections, as a result of Sumar’s veto; while José Manuel Albares, in charge of Foreign Affairs and Teresa Ribera, responsible for the Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge portfolio are close to passing.
Despite the fact that citizens support the management of the Ministries of Economic Affairs and Labour, the economic crisis, unemployment and the quality of employment are at the top of the list of problems that most concern Spaniards. Up to 36.6% of those surveyed have indicated that problems of an economic nature are among the first three topics that descend to the country as a whole, while 30.9% affirm the same of unemployment and 12.9% of problems related to the quality of employment. However, the tables turn slightly when they are asked about the issue that most directly affects them.
Health sneaks into this podium, while for 38.5% the economic crisis is a headache, compared to 15.2% who are concerned about the quality of employment (salary, hours, temporality) and 14.4% for the unemployment. The body directed by José Félix Tezanos once again reflects a disparity between the perception that citizens have about the general situation of the economy and the particular situation of their homes. 65% of those surveyed maintain that their personal economic situation is good and another 4.3% even affirm that it is very good, while 15.6% say that it is bad. On the other hand, in general only 33% believe that the situation is positive compared to 39.7% who believe that it is negative.
