Immigration macro theme played a great role in the growth of Matteo Salvini and his Lega. But in the last year, the pandemic has become the focus of public opinion, leading to shifts in consensus between parties. And Matteo Salvini seems to have paid more than others for this unexpected change of agenda. In fact, he recorded a decline of 4 points, reaching 27%. At this moment, however, we are in a phase of stability which is also evident in Italians voting intentions. As for the other half of the Right Parties, in which leadership is contended, Giorgia Meloni probably owes her growth to the fact that she managed to shift attention to other issues than immigration. Her consensus is stable and constant and stands at around 30%. Closes Silvio Berlusconi who has 19% of trust.

As for the trust in Giuseppe Conte and in Central Left leaders, the former Prime Minister stands at 58%, keeping intact his electoral consensus; he is followed at a certain distance by Enrico Letta with 39%, Nicola Zingaretti with 33% and Matteo Renzi with 11%.

The Prime Minister Mario Draghi, after having obtained the highest consensus that a Prime Minister has obtained in the last 20-25 years, stands at around 60%. With the Center-Right that is beginning to lose confidence in his government. The same can be said by M5S voters.
