The voter of Podemos gives more support to the Budgets than the PSOE

The current political situation forces the Government , far from the absolute majority, to negotiate openly the General Budgets of the State . The PSOE already has the support of Unidos Podemos, and now seeks the votes of the nationalist and pro-independence formations to carry out the accounts.

In this context, there is a clear division of opinions among Spaniards on the draft accounts presented by the left. 46% believe that, overall, it is good for Spain compared to 38% who think it is bad. It is the main conclusion of the Metroscopy survey for Henneo of the month of October. It is striking, yes, that the voter of Podemos gives more support to the accounts (82%) than the PSOE (76%).

One of the measures described as the star of these PGE is the rise in the minimum wage to 900 euros . Well, it is the least viable according to respondents: 63% . And this is the case – and here comes the ideological component – because only 53% of the voters of Citizens and only one of every three voters of the PP (36%) think that it is economically possible to carry it out at the moment.

Another point that is dealt with in the survey is the urgency of the measures. The increase in investment for the care of dependents, the contribution of the self-employed based on their real income and the re-establishment of the subsidy for those over 52 years of age, are measures perceived in a transversal manner as urgent by the voters of all political parties of the system.

Dependence and self-employed, more urgent measures

91% of Spaniards consider it urgent to expand the investment in dependence, a figure that ranges from 86% of the voters of Citizens and 97% of those of Unidos Podemos. The voters of the PP (87%) would approach those of Citizens and those of the PSOE (96%) to those of the formation in residence.

A similar unanimity is also reached for the contribution of the self-employed according to their real income . This measure is urgently believed by 92% of United Podemos voters, 91% of PSOE voters, 85% among Citizens and 80% of popular voters. More ideological component is shown in the regulation of rental prices. They request speed at the time of implanting this measure 91% of the voters of United We can and 90% of those of the PSOE, against 59% of those of Citizens and 58% of the popular ones. A difference of thirty points.

On the other side are those that are considered less urgent. That maternity and paternity leave are equal and non-transferable is, among all the main measures on which opinion has been asked in this survey, the one perceived with less degree of urgency : 59% of Spaniards consider it as such.

And the viability?

On the one hand there is the need for certain measures to be applied and another for them to be viable. If the rise in the minimum wage is the most complicated step for Spaniards, if it is economically feasible to equalize and transfer the maternal and paternal leave. Of course, it is the only measure that being viable is not considered urgent . That is, among the voters of the four main parties, those who consider it economically viable outweigh those who think it is urgent.

The most economically viable measure of those subject to evaluation in this survey is that which affects the self-employed and their contribution based on the real income they obtain. This is the opinion of eight out of ten Spaniards (79%) who include the vast majority of voters in the four main parties: 89% of those of Unidos Podemos, 83% of those of the PSOE, 82% of those of Citizens and, to a lesser extent, 68% of the PP .
