The political news is full of issues that divide Spaniards today, as shown by the September barometer of EL PAÍS and Cadena SER, but the issue that monopolized the news in the month of August attracts a very majority opinion, with few exceptions. Up to 72% of those surveyed see the behavior of the still president of the Spanish Football Federation, José Luis Rubiales, as “inadmissible” after the women’s team won the World Championship, according to the 40dB survey. A very similar percentage (70.9%) believes that the success of Spanish female soccer players “could contribute to greater real equality between men and women.”
The forcefulness of these general data does not prevent nuances from being noticed when segmenting opinions by ideological blocks. And at this point some differences arise between right and left: those who condemn Rubiales the most are Sumar voters (88.4%) and those who condemn the least, by far, are Vox voters (52.2%). Without much difference, the rejection is also greater among the PSOE electorate (83.4%) than among PP supporters (69.6%).
This relative departure from the social consensus among far-right voters is seen even more clearly when faced with the question of whether the world title of the women’s soccer team will contribute to greater equality between the sexes. This opinion is shared by 81.8 % of PSOE supporters, 80.4% of Sumar supporters, 76.8% of PP supporters and 72.8% of peripheral nationalist parties. From there there is a sharp drop when consulting with the voters of the extreme right, who answer in the affirmative in 50.9%. All the internal data of the survey can be consulted on the EL PAÍS and SER websites.
