“PP is a party with potential, but with a leader in total decline”

The president of the Center for Sociological Research (CIS), José Felix Tezanos, says that the difference in trends between the PSOE and the PP in the last published survey can be explained by the decline in popularity of Alberto Núñez Feijóo: “The PP is an important party, with great potential, but there is a leader in reduction. total,” he explained in an interview with 24 hours from RNE.

This Wednesday found out the results of the latest CIS barometer, where PSOE rose to first position with a vote estimate of 34%, outperformed PP by almost two points (32.1%). “I think what’s behind this is something that hasn’t been reported enough, the decline in popularity of Alberto Núñez Feijóo,” argued Tezanos when asked about the new data.

Therefore, he indicated that the survey asked an open-ended question Which person do the Spanish want as President of the Government?. In this barometer, Pedro Sánchez has once again emerged as the favorite of the citizens with 30.4% of the votes, two and a half points more than in December. Behind them are Feijóo (16.5%), Yolanda Díaz (6%) and Santiago Abascal (4%). The president of Madrid, the ‘popular’ Isabel Díaz Ayuso, also appears in the results, with a 3.8% rating.

“There was a time when they are balanced and in this survey there is a drop extraordinary”, added Tezanos, who also highlighted the difference in voting intentions between the leaders and their parties: “Pedro Sánchez is almost 13 points ahead of the PSOE’s preference.” In the case of Feijóo, he is the one behind the purpose of voting on its formation. “This is an analytical novelty of great importance,” insisted the president of the CIS, who opined that these changes may be due to “that people feel confused by the negative.”

“Citizens are concerned about the economy, jobs and health”

On the other hand, Tezanos influences the main concerns of citizens, which are also included in the barometer. “The citizen is worried economy, employment and health“, he said. For the CIS president, the key is in “everyday life”, such as emancipation and access to housing for new generations.

On the other hand, issues such as the amnesty law or the independence of Catalonia are not “on the agenda at this time.” “We are talking about a law that has never been approved. We are talking about the future where many people pay attention, but we don’t know what result they will get,” said the sociologist.

When asked what was the “obvious” solution to the youth’s concerns, Tezanos said it would be an increase in wages and housing. “Society implements a bad policy of low wages that makes it difficult to live.” “I don’t really understand the stinginess of the SMI,” he added, after which he defended that “high wages” help “stimulate the economy.”

Tezanos, target of criticism of the parties

The sociologist’s work has drawn criticism from other parties on many occasions, such as We can do itwho claims to have “data manipulation”, Voxwho filed a complaint for “prevarication” against Tezanos, or the PPwhose leader even accused him of “bordering on embezzlement” for using public money to “create a false effect” in the polls and vowed to remove him.

In fact, the PP is asking for a congressional commission of inquiry in the functioning of the CIS and that “responsibilities” will be assumed if any irregularity is found in its direction.

In response, Tezanos himself said that he would resign from his position if Feijóo becomes President of the Government in the 23J elections. “If they form a Government, which I do not see as likely, the same minute after taking office I will present my resignation,” he said in an interview with RNE.

Finally, the Government confirmed Tezanos as head of the CIS in December. “The sociologist who got the surveys right“said the spokesperson of the Executive, Minister Pilar Alegría, about him.
