Only 24% want to continue with ' procés '

Although it is not safe for correlation of forces in new Catalan parliament to change completely, majority of Catalans want to park independence process that began in 2012 under tutelage of former president Artur Mas. Only 24% of respondents want to move forward with groundbreaking strategy. Obviously electorate of constitutionalist parties does not want it, but it also reflects a great deal of fatigue between independence.

In total defend this formula of government 35% of Catalans, being 100% of PP motivated in this regard. 91% of citizens ' voters are also betting on this route, while a prominent 60% of PSC voters would support this formula.

In any case, search for a negotiated solution will appear, with different formulas, both in programs of new PDeCAT brand, Junts per Catalunya, and ERC. And its voters mostly endorse this path. The only ones that are severely divided — to 50% — would be CUP's. All of this does not imply that independence has been diluted. Despite falling in intention of vote, 40% of Catalan population continues to bet on a government formed by ERC, Junts per Catalunya and CUP or, failing that, by those Parties that want to move forward with independence process, whatever y are (39%).
