More than 70% of Spaniards support the proposal that the most voted list govern in an election, according to a CIS survey on current affairs, carried out last April. This proposal, which has been recovered by the new leader of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, although his party did not apply it in the 2019 regional elections, finds precisely its greatest support among PP voters (89%), while it drops to 70%. among those of the PSOE or Vox and falls to 44% among the followers of United We Can.
Now, when citizens are asked about the formula that makes this proposal viable, such as a bonus of seats to the first electoral force, as is the case in Greece or Italy, support is reduced to just over 50%. And, in addition, almost 40% are against granting a plus of deputies to the most voted list.
In this last case, the PP voters are again the most in favor of giving priority to the force with the most votes (almost 70%), followed by those of Vox (61%), PSOE (57%) and Podemos (30%). . In fact, more than a third of socialist or ultra-right voters reject the bonus for the party with the most votes, and this rejection reaches 61% of radical left voters.
The second position is occupied by gender violence (more than 67%), followed by the energy transition and the war in Ukraine (64%). On the other hand, the possible agreements on foreign policy in relation to Morocco or on the renewal of the Judiciary and the Constitutional Court are only considered very important by just over 50%. Interestingly, more than 90% of PP voters support an agreement on the economic measures plan to mitigate the consequences of the war in Ukraine, which his party ended up rejecting in Congress.
On the other hand, the survey also asks about the political tension in Spain. In this regard, 86% of those consulted consider that there is "a lot or quite a lot of tension", although the responsibilities are widely distributed. 11% blame the PSOE and a similar rate Vox, while only 6% point to the PP and 5% to United We Can. The majority of voters on the right blame the Socialist Party while among the electorate on the left the blame is focused on Vox.
Finally, the survey asks about climate change (a threat that worries 81% of Spaniards) and about the trip of the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, to kyiv, which deserves the approval of almost 70% of those consulted.
