Some 35% of respondents believe that the municipal Management is good or very good, 11.5% that it is normal and an increased proportion of those critical, at around 50%. A similar rating can be seen in the respective cases of the Catalan government’s management and the Spanish government’s management, although positive opinions come to 31%, below the municipal figure.

A barometer without political ratings

The Barometer is the six-monthly survey taken through telephone interviews with 800 Barcelona-based respondents who are eligible to vote at the municipal elections. In this case, as it is a pre-electoral Barometer, the report does not contain any political questions, let alone voting intentions or assessments of political leaders, in accordance with the guidelines established under the Sociological Studies Plan (PES) for 2020-2023.
