Can Podemos still make it?

26 Oct, 2015 - - @kanciller

So far this year, Podemos has lost nearly 10 points on voter intention surveys. Its best moment was January, when voting intention was close to 25 percent and everything suggested a scenario similar to Italy in 2013, with three blocs balancing each other out (the left, the right and theanti-establishment groups).

But the outlook right now is very different. An average of survey results shows that voter support for Podemos has dropped to approximately 15%, and in recent surveys it has even been bested by Ciudadanos. Therefore, it seems increasingly unlikely that the majority parties will be surpassed by the newcomers, and everything instead indicates a future of coalitions.
