Occupancy, cleaning, the economic model and mobility have been the most polarizing issues during this campaign and those that have set the tone the most over the last few days. This is what emerges from the results of the Elecsions Barcelona interactive, prepared by Public Affairs Experts for La Vanguardia and which has registered more than 29,000 users since it was launched two months ago.

With 48 hours to go before the start of election day, the preferred candidates are being profiled in the interactive, although there are still many undecided. Precisely during the last two weeks it has been possible to appreciate certain turns of preference from the parties that are almost guaranteed to enter the Consistory towards those who are fighting for the 5% of votes that would allow them to enter the plenary session.

With certain variations in results, squatting has been a topic of interest in the districts of Les Corts and Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, areas where on average 70% of users have voted in favor of tightening the existing measures currently This figure contrasts with the 60% obtained on a general scale. The districts that most disagree with this vision are Ciutat Vella, Sants-Montjuïc and Gràcia, with more than 30% in favor of a law that distinguishes occupation by vulnerable families from delinquent ones.

On the other hand, cleaning has been another interest that has marked the agenda in recent weeks with some consensus, since less than 10% of users in all districts perceive that there has been an increase in cleaning brigades or faster and more agile attention to solve specific incidents.

Regarding the economic model, the majority of respondents believe that growth must be done in a sustainable way and by supporting SMEs and the self-employed, and they are men between 35 and 49 years old who live in the Eixample, specifically in the Former Esquerra de l’Eixample, those who most advocate for the latter. Likewise, there is low support for the fact that the development of the city of Barcelona must be linked to the Catalan economy in order to be less susceptible to the effects of crises: only 12.82% support this statement.

Finally, mobility and traffic act in the opposite way to the rest of the themes, because more moderate attitudes gain more support, as opposed to those that are more extreme, such as those that propose the elimination of the private vehicle. The polarization of these four issues could indicate that parties with stronger and less centrist positions would have managed to capture the attention of certain undecided voters during the official campaign period.
