PODEMOS would smash the Socialist party stronghold in Andalucia if the elections were held today, according to the latest polls.
The Socialist PSOE would still win the election, according to the survey by Spain’s Social Observatory (OSE), but would suffer an eight point drop in its dominance.
The PP meanwhile would lose 12 points.
Podemos, however, would sweep 18% of the vote in a breakthrough that would relegate the IU to fourth place.
Founded in January, the left-wing political party is led by writer and professor Pablo Iglesias Turrion.
Depite only being four months old at the time, the party stunned the country at the European Parliament elections this year, taking 8% of the vote.
A former Malaga University (UMA) professor has also joined the Podemos ranks this month, to help formulate the party’s economic plan.
Economist Juan Torres – who taught Applied Economics at UMA until 2008, and has previously advised both PSOE and IU – will draw up the Podemos economic plans.
The survey also found that a favourite government for most Andalucians would be a coalition between Podemos, the IU and green party Equo.
