Introduction
I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Salamanca, and member of the Democracy Research Unit (DRU). I am also part of an international network that aims to examine the relationship between populist attitudes and policy preferences in different European countries, and their effects on voting. Overall, I like to study the formation and stability of political attitudes, and the extent to which these shape individuals´ political behavior.

Article
Full-text available
Basic human values have been used to predict voting patterns associated with the left–right and the authoritarian-libertarian divides. However, the connection between basic human values and populist voting has received less attention, especially if an ideational approach to populism is considered, that allows for separating it from traditional dime...
Article
Full-text available
There is little doubt that supply-side populism associates with radical platforms of the left and the right. However, few empirical analyses have focused on the connection between left-right ideological radicalism and populism at the individual level, even less in countries where populist discourses are not only associated with the radical right. T...
Article
Full-text available
The populist radical-right label brings together parties characterised by their adherence to populism, nativism, and authoritarianism. While the relevance of the label to the family is unquestioned, its popularity, combined with the theoretical affinity between the three core elements, may cause radical-right parties to be systematically considered...
Article
Full-text available
Prior studies have theorized a positive association between people's populist attitudes and an increased use of social media to consume news, which will be mainly driven by individuals' engagement with news that reflects their people-centered, anti-elitist, and Manichean understanding of politics. However, such general connection remains elusive. T...
Article

This article explains the rise, success, and subsequent failure of new challenger formations in the Galician party system during the Great Recession. For that, it focuses on the multidimensional electoral strategies developed by Alternativa Galega de Esquerda (AGE) and En Marea, comparing them to that of the traditional Bloque Nacionalista Galego (...
Data
This dataset consists of two different surveys conducted to disentangle the relationships between populist attitudes, programmatic preferences, and socio-demographic characteristics in several party systems. The surveys gather data aimed at assessing: 1) the nature of the associations between populist attitudes and programmatic preferences, politic...
Article
Full-text available
Evidence indicates that populist attitudes matter for voting decisions, but findings are still inconclusive about whether this happens regardless of individuals' positioning on more traditional dimensions of electoral competition. This article focuses on the probability of voting for populist parties in Spain, a country where only left-wing populis...
Article
Full-text available
In this article, we defend the ideational approach to populism by arguing that populist discourses have consequences for government formation and the coalition choices of political parties. Using two attempts of government formation in Spain during 2016 as an example, we show that incorporating a populist dimension of competition alongside the two...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The proliferation of populist parties across the world has lead increasing academic attention to the reasons behind their success, a question that remains yet unsettled. This article focuses on a relatively unexplored connection, and investigates whether differences in the structure of basic human values explain voting for populist parties. For tha...
Article
Full-text available
Beginning with the economic crisis in 2008, a number of European societies witnessed the emergence of ‘new parties’. Most authors explain their electoral appeal by focusing on how the perceived state of the economy influences individuals’ voting decisions. This article determines the extent to which political attitudes can also explain voting for n...
Article
Full-text available
Can a study of populist parties in Southern Europe shed light on the relation between populism and Euroscepticism? The proposed comparative framework examines the different degrees and types of Euroscepticism of populist parties in the Southern region. We expect that the variety of populist parties in this region, more oriented to the left, will he...

This paper aims at analysing the influence of ethnic and linguistic identities on voting preferences in the left–right ideological scale. Its innovative contribution relays on studying minorities’ voting preferences across 23 European nations, using as dependent variable a novel measurement which combines past voting declaration and experts’ numeri...
Conference Paper
The debt crisis has had profound effects on the politics of several European countries. In the countries that were most severely hit by the crisis, widespread feelings of political discontent arose and trust in politicians dramatically decreased, as a reaction to the failure of parties and governments to respond successfully to the economic situati...
Conference Paper
This research sheds light on recent changes in voting behaviour in Spanish politics, in particular, voting for new parties in the 2015 legislative elections in Spain. Our aim is to evaluate to what extent voting for new parties is motivated by programmatic orientations or rather, it responds to a rejection to politics and the political establishmen...
Article
Full-text available
Contrary to the generality of thoughts about political transition in former Yugoslav republics, the observation of ethnic diversity is not able to explain the diversity of results observed in the region by itself. This paper seeks to explain the most important differences in democratization in the 90´s decade, using techniques of comparative analys...
Article
Full-text available
This article examines the individual and contextual factors affecting peripheral identifications in Spain. It does so by conducting multilevel statistical analyses on two surveys on regional and national identifications that were carried out by the Centro de Investigaciones Sociológicas in 1996 and 2006, at two very different political conjunctures...
Article
Full-text available
This article analyzes the structural and institutional conditions related to the presence of autonomist and secessionist political parties. Since not every multinational or plurinational democracy presents demands of secession or redefinition of the political community in terms of the demos, the main hypothesis here is that there exists a combinati...

With this purpose, it applies the Discourse Quality Index (DQI) developed by Steiner et al (2004) to the analysis of the Debate sobre el Estado de la Nación in the Spanish Parliament. This work places Spain in a comparative context (comparisons ad extra) a...

Project
This project examines changes in the relationships among populist attitudes, programmatic preferences, and socio-demographic characteristics in West European Party systems. It aims at analyzing both individual variations within national cases and cross-national and cross-time differences. The project will gather data and perform analyses aimed at assessing 1) the nature of the associations among populist attitudes, programmatic preferences, political values and socio-demographic characteristics, and 2) the direct and indirect effects of such attitudes and characteristics on voting and electoral competition.
Project
Economic crisis that began in 2008 and affected in varying degrees all Western countries, triggered a political crisis with sharp consequences over political systems, especially those of the most afected societies. The main goal of this project is to go into the details of the party system transformation process that European countries are experiencing, meanwhile the research focus both in the supply and demand side of the electoral competition. An especial attention is given to new parties, besides new political phenomena that are affecting party systems: populism, rising Euroescepticism and the return of class politics.
