The pre-electoral macro-survey which shakes the political landscape in Spain on the eve of the electoral campaign

Madrid/ The macro-barometer published today by the Center for Sociological Research (CIS) has shaken the political landscape two days before the start of the electoral campaign, not only because of the results it predicts, and the high percentage of undecided, but because of the criticisms has provoked PP and Ciudadanos.

 

 
The two parties have agreed to criticize what they consider a “kitchen” typical of the category of great chefs, who believe the president of the CIS, Jose Felix Tezanos, whom the popular qualify as a Ferran Adria of the stoves of the opinion polls.

Ciudadanos has directly claimed Tezanos “go to home” with this “deliberate manipulation”, which presents a difficult perspective for a right which wouldn’t add seats to form a government after the elections on April 28, if the forecasts shown by the macro survey are confirmed.

CIS poses a positive outlook for the PSOE, which would be the most voted force with up to 138 seats and could form a Government with Ciudadnos or with Unidas Podemos and their confluences without needing to ask for the support of the nationalists.

But the key to the pre-campaign scenario is that “everything is very open because there are many people who have not yet decided their vote”, as pointed out today by the number one of the PSC for Barcelona in the general elections of April 28, the Minister of Public Administration, Meritxell Batet.

Therefore, Batet has warned “it’s still real” the possibility of setting up a government between PP, Ciudadanos and Vox, and has called for a “very strong and majority support” to ensure a new Executive chaired by Pedro Sanchez.

The candidate of Unidas Podemos to the Presidency, Pablo Iglesias, has also considered that “we are facing the most decisive campaign in history”, with 41.6% of voters who have not decided the vote, and a “degree of unpredictability without precedents”.

“Opened scenarios” and the tactical voting

Thus, as he believes that all scenarios are “opened” has asked to be “very cautious” with the polls, after showing the CIS that his party could lose half of deputies and be only 28, compared to 67 now, next to En Comu Podem and En Marea.

For the leader of the PP, Pablo Casado, CIS shows his party is the only alternative to a socialist government, so he has returned to appeal to the tactical voting, this Tuesday at an event in Mahón, but this time to warn that EH Bildu may be the beneficiary of the division of the center right in the Basque provinces.

For his part, Sanchez will focus his electoral campaign in Catalonia and the Valencian Community, the territories he will visit most in search of the urban vote and the undecided stock market that can be decisive for the result on April 28th.

Meanwhile, Casado has reiterated his frontal attack on the Government because he assures that Sanchez will count on the support of the “terrorists”, he said, of the nationalist formation to repeat at La Moncloa although the exalted tone of his intervention yesterday has dropped a bit.
