Spanish survey estimates Prince Felipe of Asturias is ready to succeed to his father King Juan Carlos I

According to a recent survey made by Pulse of the Fundación José Ortega y Gasset and Gregorio Marañón, 69% of those who voted for the Left party in the last general elections also believes that, eventually, Prince Felipe is ready to succeed to King Juan Carlos I. 

The report, conducted through 5,000 surveys from 24 September to 5 November 2010, also reflects the parliamentary monarchy political system remains the most preferred by the Spanish, but his support has declined over the last two years from 72 to 57%, while the Republican option grew from 11 to 35%. 

The positive view of social support that will Rey Don Felipe and future is more widespread among the Spanish under 35 years (78 percent) than among those over 55 (74%) and 83 per Share percent of respondents aged between 35 and 54. The Spanish give an average rating of 6.7, the way the Prince of Asturias functions currently performed as a result of scores ranging from an average of 7.3 of the voters of PP, 6.8 for those who chose by the PSOE in the 2008 elections and 4.9 IU of those who voted. 

Although similar levels, the survey shows a higher proportion of positive responses from the PSOE voters than among the PP to questions about whether social support will be needed to succeed the King (83% versus 79) and if he is properly prepared to assume the status of head of state (as well as create a 89% of Socialist voters and 88 of the PP). As to the form of state, 81% of those who voted in 2008 IU prefer that Spain is a republic, an option that shares 40% of the voters of the PSOE and 15% of the PP. 

King Juan Carlos received from the Spanish average score of 7.3 by the way he has performed his duties as head of state during his 35 year reign, a note that rises to 7.5 in the case of voters PSOE, reached 7.8 between the PP and falls to 5.5 among those who voted to IU. The report also shows that 74% of respondents believe that the Spanish monarchy is firmly established and 56% believe it brings stability and calmness to political life, but 65 says that "it has been useful for the transition to democracy, but as time passes it makes less sense."
