In our assessment of the current state of the British public debate based on the original data collected by the CISE as part of the comparative ICCP project, we have seen that among British voters have a great deal of interest in shared goals, although divisive economic policies are quite relevant as well, with the traditional left-wing positions having the upper hand. Here we look at political parties. Basically, what we have already seen in both France and the Netherlands is that two different party strategies emerge. On the one hand, they can present a consensual face, omitting conflicts and campaigning on their credibility...

Building on the tools provided by issue yield theory (De Sio and Weber 2014), this analysis looks at the data collected by CISE through a CAWI survey launched a few weeks before the British general election. Similarly to what we have recently done before the Dutch parliamentary election last March and the French Presidential election last April, we rely on an innovative measurement of positional issues, which provides a common issue yield index for this type of issues. Positional issues are in general, defined by reference to two rival goals (e.g. progressive vs. traditional morality): the issue yield measure assesses the...

Beyond the study of the issues that are considered as a priority, another interesting aspect of the survey conducted by the CISE (Italian Center for Electoral Studies) in view of the next UK general election, refers to the support accorded by voters to 18 positional issues, selected in cooperation with a team of British researchers. Specifically, each respondent was asked to position himself on a 6-point scale where the points 1 and 6 represent the two rival goals to be pursued on a given issue. Looking at the configuration of voters’ support for the different issues will allow us...

(traduzione a cura di Elisabetta Mannoni) Notwithstanding Macron’s victory, the result of the French Presidential election is the prove that an earthquake hit the political setting in France with the exclusion – for the very first time since 1958 – of both pillars of Fifth Republic, the socialist and the Gaullist parties. The second round between Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen perfectly represents the increased relevance of a new dimension of competition, different from the left-right one that had prevailed so far. A dimension which is orthogonal with respect to the left-right axis, and for which the scientific research has...

Il ballottaggio di domenica prossima potrebbe decidere le sorti future non solo della Francia, ma anche dell’Unione Europea. Il voto del primo turno ci consegna un quadro politico terremotato, con l’esclusione – per la prima volta dal 1958 – dei due grandi partiti socialista e gollista, architravi del sistema della V Repubblica. La sfida al ballottaggio tra Emmanuel Macron e Marine Le Pen rappresenta plasticamente l’accresciuta importanza di una dimensione di competizione alternativa alla (finora) prevalente linea di conflitto sinistra-destra. Una dimensione ortogonale all’asse sinistra-destra e sulla quale la letteratura scientifica non ha ancora elaborato una definizione condivisa. Si tratta...
