Analyzing a Spanish Election Poll with Aquienvoto

Victoriano Izquierdo

A high voter turnout is one of the pillars of well working democracy. However, many countries have been struggling recently to bring their citizens to the ballot boxes at election day. Platforms like Aquienvoto want to simplify one’s identification with a political party by navigating users through exemplary questions that define different political opinions. In the end users receive a result and a recommendation of what party is closest to their opinion. From the 1st to the 29th of April, more than 1.5M people did the survey at Aquienvoto. 540,000 from these people did the anonymous survey and indicated also their voting intention, gender, age and all their opinions to the political questions.

Of course, working together to analyze the survey data collected by Aquienvoto with an Exploration Tool like Graphext would be a very insightful project. To start with we created a completely anonymous and random subset of 30,000 survey respondents. We created that selection out of all respondents that left demographic details as well as their opinions to the 45 questions. In the following we are going to summarize the main insights that you can als find in the original project here.
