Are the Kids Leaning Right?

Polls show that 50% of the 18-34 cohort intends to vote for the right-wing.

With just over two weeks to go until the legislative elections, the latest poll released by Universidade Católica for PÚBLICO, RTP and Antena 1 shows that 50% of the young people surveyed intend to vote on the Right.

Compared to the previous Católica survey, the centre-left PS and Livre were the parties that grew the most in voting intentions in the 18 to 34 age group, without overtaking Aliança Democrática (AD), Chega and IL, which occupy the podium in this segment of the electorate.

20% of respondents aged 18-34 admit to voting for AD, 16% for CHEGA and 14 for IL. The other 50% are divided between the left and the PAN (around 24%).

Comparing this poll with the last one, conducted in November, the PS and Livre were the parties that grew the most in this age group (by 4 points each, to 10% and 5% respectively). The PAN was the only political force to lose support among the youngest: from 4% to 2%.

In addition to the Universidade Catolica studies, the Intercampus and ICS/ISCTE polls also show that young people tend to vote more to the right.
