The rise of the party led by Elly Schlein continues, while the first government force loses support. Young people between 18 and 24 are less inclined to abstain. And preferences polarize
The Democratic Party goes up, in the wake of Elly Schlein's new secretariat and goes beyond the psychological threshold of 20 percent (20.3 percent with a +0.7). On the contrary, the first government party is declining, despite remaining steadfast in first place in the consensus: FdI is at 29.2 percent (-0.4). These are the results of a survey carried out by the Euromedia Research institute for Door to door published by the newspaper The print. The third party, the M5s, is below the Democratic Party by more than 5 percentage points, to 15 percent approval (and loses 0.6 percent). Followed by Lega with 9.4 (stable), the Third pole of Action and Italia viva with 8.4 (+0.1 percent) and Forza Italia with 6.5 percent (-0.4 percent ).
The results clearly show a polarization of voting intentions towards two identical and opposite positions, embodied by two leaders who have in common the fact that they are young and women. Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and opposition leader Elly Schlein (who makes the leader of the 5 stars, Giuseppe Conte, and that of Avs, Nicola Fratoianni pay the price for his rise) they have succeeded in magnetizing and polarizing at least a part of the age group which usually takes refuge in abstentionism. In fact, an active participation of young people between 18 and 24 years of age was recorded in the polls, who expressed preferences for one or the other political force: 25.6 per cent choose Pd and 23, 3 opt for FdI. One in four young people who vote chooses one of two political leaders.
The evidence of the radicalization of the confrontation between Giorgia Meloni and Elly Schlein became clear in the response to the Cutro massacre of 26 February. It is a clear split, the one that emerges from the numbers: 46.6 percent of citizens are not satisfied with how the Meloni government managed the phases following the shipwreck. In particular, attention was focused on the failure to pay homage to the remains of the prime minister during the visit to Steccato di Cutro for the CDM. For 47.5 percent of the Italians interviewed, the Prime Minister should have gone in front of the coffins of the victims of the shipwreck, long before inviting her relatives to Palazzo Chigi.
