The comment of Roberto Baldassari (author of the survey)
Joys and sorrows of the League at the time of the coronavirus. This could be the synthesis of what emerges from the last survey carried out between 15 and 18 May 2020 on a representative sample of the Italian population: even if territorially and politically close, the Salvini Governors emblematically represent the two sides of the medal of public opinion strongly segmented by the effects of coronavirus not only physically but also emotionally, socially and psychologically.
Going to analyze the ranking of the satisfaction of the work of the Governors of the Italian regions, it is clear that there is a first group of Governors who at multiple levels have collected a high degree of satisfaction with their regional electorate. At the top, in the first two positions, we find Luca Zaia and Vincenzo De Luca paired as the only two Governors who exceed 70 at regional level and 50 at national level which, with the appropriate communication-managerial differences, have proven most of all to be in service of its citizens.
In third position we find the Governor of the Emilia Romagna Region Stefano Bonaccini followed by the Governor of Umbria Tesei and the Secretary of the Democratic Party and Governor of Lazio Nicola Zingaretti: while the first two, Bonaccini and Tesei, gather consensus and trust while not overexposing at the level national media, Zingaretti cleverly mixes the two roles by interpreting the needs of Lazio with the national dynamics.
In sixth and seventh positions we find the Governor of Tuscany Rossi and that of Liguria Giovanni Toti who anticipate the trio Solinas, Santelli, Musumeci who closes the Top Ten of the Governors “promoted” by their respective electors.
In the second block of the ranking stands the Governor of Lombardy Attilio Fontana who probably most of all catalyzes negatively on himself the effects of Covid-19. Even the Governor of Molise Donato Toma, Renzo Testolin of Valle d’Aosta, Michele Emiliano Governor of Puglia are unable to reach 40%, which despite the high level of knowledge, both regional and national, seems to segment “its” ‘electorate.
