Maybe it was the young people between 18 and 40 years old who “betrayed” Unidos Podemos. According to some post-vote demographic research, the high number of absentees in this age range, might have caused the trouble.
Naturally, this eventual objective data doesn’t explain by itself “why” such a large sector of the population abstained itself, but it might put Unidos Podemos’ leaders on the right path to examine what surely appears to be a cluster of causes. While waiting for the purple leadership to obtain the survey’s results, which, according to what was communicated after the vote, was commissioned to, NC, a specialized company, the first analysis shows some very clear things which do not only involve Pablo Iglesias’ team.
For example, according to the report, the conclusions of which were published Wednesday in the Spanish newspapers, the PP filled up its tank with votes — 400,000 votes went to the PP from the orange party, partially explaining its success.
But, going back to Unidos Podemos, the starting point is that almost 1 million votes went missing.
