The alliance between center left e 5 star movement winning both a Naples that a Bologna. A little more than two weeks after the vote, the last ones surveys on the next municipal elections they reward Gaetano Manfredi e Matteo Lepore, with the latter credited with a large victory already in the first round. In Naples, the survey of Ipsos for the Corriere della Sera esteems the former minister al 45,5%, with a wide advantage over the center-right candidate Catello Maresca, stopped at 29.5%. The M5s he first started with the 18,6% preferences, followed by the Pd al 17,4%. A Bologna the survey You-Trend for the Gedi group instead sees Lepore even doubling the number supported by the center-right, Fabio Battistini: 60.1% of preferences against 32,5%.
According to the polls, therefore, in the two cities the voters will reward the Giallorossi alliance. It will be difficult for Manfredi to win in the first round, even if the Ipsos survey was concluded when the decision of the Tar was not yet known, which excluded the list of the League e two civics in support of Maresca. At the same time, one in four voters (24%) is still undecided on the vote for the candidate for mayor. Manfredi, however, according to the survey, can be calm in view of the second round. Both the voters of Antonio Bassolino (the former mayor and former president of the region is estimated at 11%) that of Alessandra Clemente (the former councilor of de Magistris is in turn credited with an 11%) largely declare that Manfredi will vote for a possible ballot.
In Bologna, however, the second round seems to be a remote hypothesis to date. You-Trend predicts a win overwhelming di Lepore, former councilor for Culture and Tourism, even better than the 57.4% obtained by Sergio Cofferati. Also in this case a success of the M5s-Pd alliance, even if here the Democrats exceed the 40%, while the pentastellates are still at8,1%. In any case, votes are decisive to guarantee victory in the first round. Although the Civic Coalition could do better, the list also promoted by Elly Schlein, and the civic sponsored by Renziana Isabella Conti: both aim to break 10%. In center right instead the competition is more internal than anything else: Brothers of Italy is estimated at 11.9% and approaches the League, which still maintains a 16,3%.
