Yolanda Díaz is already the best valued political leader, above Pedro Sánchez

One month ago, the Second Vice President of the Government and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Diaz, claimed his leadership in United We Can based on the fact that she is, without a doubt, the purple leader with the best appreciation by the citizens. Already then she was well above her two companions at the table of the Council of Ministers: the head of Social Rights and general secretary of the purple formation, Ione Grass, and the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero. But it is that now it even exceeds Pedro Sanchez.

After the delivery of this Sunday, on voting intention, in which the consolidation of the advantage of the PP of Pablo Casado, the only good news that the survey carried out by SocioMétrica for EL ESPAÑOL granted to the Government of Spain is that the leaders of the two parties that make it up, PSOE and United We Can, are the best (or least bad) valued: a 3,5 and a 3,7 respectively.

They are followed in the valuation of Spaniards by the leaders of the center-right, with a 3.1 of the leader of Ciudadanos, Ines Arrimadas; a 2,9 of the president of the PP, Pablo Casado; and a 2.8 from the Vox leader, Santiago Abascal.

The Minister of Labor is always one of the highest rated policies in all polls, the same ones that hitherto gave an increasingly marked drop in voting intention to a purple list headed by her.

However, in the last month, in which she has finally made her intention to launch a platform explicit “above parties, acronyms, names and egos” To articulate “a country project” – that is, without saying so, she has admitted that she will be a candidate for the Presidency of the Government – her intention to vote has improved. United we can it has gone from 10.6% to 11.4% and from 26 to 30 seats.

Precisely for that favor of the public, and after the 4-M disaster in Madrid, Pablo Iglesias decided to leave and designate her as heir. The good results in sympathy are beginning to bear fruit, at the same time that political victories are guessed within the Executive comparable to those obtained by his predecessor: the rise in the SMI, the pension reform, 15% of the Corporation tax in the Budgets, or the Housing Law with rent regulation included.

The Second Vice President and Minister of Labor, who is using Moncloa’s focus to run as the leader of a political platform that transcends even Podemos, continues to increase her popularity, since two months ago the rating given to her by the Spanish was eight tenths less.

Her friendly tone and smiling face seem to have pleased the respondents, despite her radical approaches and the 40% youth unemployment rate (the highest on the European continent) that Spain suffers after the pandemic with her in office.


1,200 surveys have been completed throughout Spain, drawn through quotas pre-determined by sex, age and Autonomous Communities from four external panels using the Gandia Integra platform, between October 4 and 7, 2021. The sample will be post-weighted by employment status, educational level , and vote recall in the 10-N elections. As it is a non-probability sampling, there is no sampling error, but convergence by interaction, which is 97%.
