Party preferences in October 2004

All respondents having the right to vote were asked an open question (i.e. without a list of political parties being used) investigating which party they would vote for if an election to the Chamber of Deputies took place the following week (the question was: ‘Imagine that an election to the Chamber of Deputies is held next week. If you participated, which party would you vote for?’). The structure of the answers given is summarised in the table.

 

The question ‘Imagine that an election to the Chamber of Deputies is held next week. Would you participate?’ was answered yes by 61% of those surveyed having the right to vote (‘definitely yes’ by 27% and ‘probably yes’ by 34%), while 30% said no (16% ‘probably not’ and 14% ‘definitely not’) and 9% did not know.
