EVP-Parteienbarometer

EPP Party Barometer October 2023

The Situation of the European People’s Party in the EU

The EPP Party Barometer illustrates the strength of the European party families in current opinion polls - with a particular focus on the European People's Party (EPP).

The EPP is the strongest political family in polls in ten countries, the socialist group in seven (if the currently suspended Smer and Hlas are included). The Liberals/Renew, the ID (far-right) and the GUE-NGL (far-left) are ahead in two countries each, the Eurosceptic-national conservative ECR in one country. In Hungary, Fidesz was leadin and in Latvia and the Netherlands, formally independent parties were ahead collectively. The picture is somewhat different if one looks at the strongest single party rather than the largest party family: Then the EPP leads in ten countries, the Socialists in six, the Liberals/Renew and the ID in three, the ECR and the Left in two each. In Hungary, Fidesz (not yet part of a political family) is in the lead. The lead over other party families or other individual parties is often very narrow (e.g. Portugal, Slovenia, Poland, Belgium, Denmark, Bulgaria), or other polls show another party family or individual party in front.
