PS again distances itself from the PSD – Politics



PS again distances itself from the PSD - Politics

PS António Costa widened the lead over Luis Montenegro’s PSD once again after the Social Democrats gained strength last month and fixed the difference between the two largest parties by just two percentage points. The Liberal Initiative and the Left Bloc also gained ground in this month’s poll.

Intercampus barometer data for Negócios, CM and CMTV shows that within a month the socialists rose again to 27% in Portuguese voting intentions, up from 24% last month. As for the Social Democratic Party, which grew significantly in November, it again distanced itself from the ruling party, not exceeding 22.1%. Last month the Social Democrats were at 22%.

The barometer shows that since July, the distance between the two largest parties has tended to narrow, peaking in November, when the gap between them was only two percentage points. December is the first month in which the gap between PS and PSD widens from 2 to 5 percentage points.

The Intercampus poll was conducted from December 12 to 14, after António Costa reshuffled the current leadership team.

Looking at other parties, Chega, as a third political force, sees a deterioration in electoral intentions, although he remains ahead of the Liberal Initiative and the Left Bloc. Andre Ventura’s party fell from 11.4% in November to 9.6% this month, according to the poll.

The Liberal Initiative, which faced a process of leadership change after the departure of Cotrim Figueiredo, remains in fourth place and has even strengthened its vote this month, rising from 6.7% to 7.5% in one month.

As for the BE, it strengthens electoral intentions, having risen to 7.5% (6.1% in November), equaling the position of the liberals.

The results of the CDU, which unites the PKP and the Greens, worsened in December: voting intentions fell to 3.8%. And this at a time when Paulo Raimundo worked for a month as the general secretary of the communists and after November registered an increase in voting intentions to 5.4%.

PAN Inês Sousa Real rises to 3.1% in December, as does CDS, which rises to 1.9%, while Livre Rui Tavares declines to 1.7%.

Evaluation of leaders and rulers

António Costa rises slightly in the leaderboard with a score of 2.9 (from 0 to 5 points), receiving the same score as João Cotrim Figueiredo, still leader of the Liberal Initiative, and Luis Montenegro.

Livre’s Rui Tavares and blogger Katarina Martins have the second best scores with a score of 2.7, while PAN’s Ines Sousa Real and CDS’s Nuno Melo scored 2.6.

Andre Ventura does not go beyond 2.2, while the communist Paulo Raimundo rises to 2.4 and is just above the last score of Jeronimo de Souza (2.2).

In terms of government officials, the minister with the most positive balance is Mariana Vieira da Silva, minister to the president, who was second in November. Pedro Nuno Santos and Fernando Medina continue to be the ministers with the most negative balances despite the reversal of positions: the finance minister leads this month as the worst minister, according to the barometer.
