A month before the elections for the Madrid community, most of the inquiries anticipate a victory for Isabel Díaz Ayuso’s Popular Party, which is close to the absolute majority due to the alliance with the extreme right of Vox.
As reported this Monday the Public, the polls show a decline in the Citizens, who ruled in coalition with Ayuso. On the left, Pablo Iglesias, of Vamos, left the post of vice president of the Government of Pedro Sánchez to be a candidate, competing with the PSOE.
The survey by the Center for Sociological Investigations (CIS), released this Monday, showed that Ayuso would win with 39.2% voting intentions and 59 seats, and Vox with 5.4%, electing nine deputies. Thus, they would remain at one of the 69 positions of the absolute majority. On the left, the poll pointed to 38 seats in the PSOE (25.3%), with 20 deputies from Más Madrid (14.8%) and ten from Unidas Pode (8.7%).
However, according to researcher at the Metroscopia polling institute, José Pablo Ferrándiz, the sum of PSOE, Más Madrid and Unidas Pode would reach 70 places, surpassing the absolute majority; while PP and Vox would get 66.
The Sigma DOS survey, commissioned by The world, pointed out Ayuso to rise from 39.5% to 42.8%, obtaining 61 or 62 seats. In this poll, Citizens and Vox lose votes.
The inquiries, continued the Public, already allow to conclude that the application of Iglesias stopped the fall of the party, although it falls short of the candidate’s expectations. The Sigma Dos survey points to 8% (2.4 points more than in 2019) and eleven or twelve places.
Ángel Gabilondo, from the PSOE, would now get 38 elected (25.3% of the votes), according to the CIS poll. Sigma DOS shows a decline from 27.5% in 2019 to 22.8%, losing votes to Pode and Más Madrid.
