The Center for Sociological Research (CIS) publishes its barometer for the month of September at noon at a time when all the polls agree on the clear decline in the electoral aspirations of the PSOE and the decisive advance of Alberto Núñez Feijóo's PP to little more one year for the general elections.
Given this, the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has proposed to go back in the polls in the last stretch of the legislature and in this attempt the changes in the PSOE before the summer are framed, the set of acts in which the head of the Executive lavishes to get closer to citizens such as the campaign "The Government of the people" or accept the face to face with Feijóo that was held last week in the Senate.
Precisely yesterday, Wednesday, the body led by the socialist militant José Félix Tezanos published that 29 percent of Spaniards who followed the debate -barely 21.1 percent of citizens- believe that Sánchez won his face-to-face with Núñez Feijóo, winner for 24 percent.
The September barometer is based on surveys carried out between September 1 and 10, which will partly reflect the effect that the face-to-face meeting held on Tuesday, September 6, could have had electorally.
In its July barometer, the CIS placed the Popular Party ahead of the Socialists for the first time since Sánchez became Prime Minister. Specifically, Feijóo would reap more than 30% of the ballots today, while Sánchez would repeat his 2019 result: 28% of the votes. The study, carried out between July 1 and 12, did not include the impact of the debate on the state of the nation that was held from July 12 to 14.
In that survey, United We Can improved its forecast of the previous barometer by almost four points and in July it harvested more than 13% of the votes, half a point more than in the elections almost three years ago. For its part, the extreme right of Vox paid for the rise of the PP and fell to 12%, three points below its 2019 result. Finally, Ciudadanos confirmed its irreversible agony and fell to 1.7% of the vote, five points less than your current count.
