The Spanish Socialist Workers Party (PSOE) is emerging as the big winner in the next elections to the European Parliament, according to the latest survey by the Center for Sociological Research (CIS). The survey shows a clear trend of preference for the PSOE among Spanish voters.

Results of the test

The survey carried out by the CIS shows the following projected results for the Spanish parties in the European Parliament:

  • 🟥 PSOE: 21-24 seats
  • 🟦 PP: 18-20 seats
  • 🟩 VOX: 5-6 seats
  • 🟥 ADD: 4 seats
  • 🟪 PODEMOS: 2-3 seats
  • 🟨 NOW REPUBLICS: 2-3 seats
  • 🟫 THE PARTY IS OVER: 1-2 seats
  • 🟩 EU TOGETHER: 1-2 seats
  • 🟧 CS: 1-2 seats
  • 🟦 CEUS: 0-1 seats

Analysis of the results

PSOE

The PSOE leads the polls with a clear advantage, projecting between 21 and 24 seats. This result reflects strong popular support and positions the party as the most influential in Spain in the European Parliament.

PP

The Popular Party (PP) is in second place with a projection of 18 to 20 seats. Although it maintains a strong position, it is behind the PSOE, evidencing a close competition between the two main parties.

VOX

VOX, with a projection of 5 to 6 seats, shows significant support, consolidating itself as the third political force in these elections. Their presence indicates considerable support for their policies among certain sectors of the electorate.

ADD and WE CAN

SUMAR and PODEMOS, left-wing parties, obtain 4 and 2-3 seats respectively. Although they do not reach the levels of the main parties, they maintain important representation in the European Parliament.

Other parties

Other parties such as NOW REPUBLICS, SE OBLA LA FIESTA, JUNTS UE, CS and CEUS will also have representation, although less. These results demonstrate the political diversity and fragmentation of the vote in Spain.

Implications

The overwhelming result of the PSOE in the polls reflects significant confidence among the electorate in its management and political proposals. The competition with the PP remains intense, which predicts a dynamic electoral campaign. The presence of VOX as a third force underlines the polarization and diversity of opinions in Spanish society.

The fragmentation of the vote between multiple minor parties also suggests a European Parliament representative of diverse ideologies and regions of Spain. These preliminary results will be fundamental for the parties' campaign strategies in the months leading up to the elections.

In summary, the upcoming elections to the European Parliament promise to be a reflection of the Spanish political landscape, with the PSOE in the lead according to current polls, but with fierce competition and a wide representation of different political forces.
