This dataset consists of five 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 the nature of the associations between populist attitudes and programmatic preferences, political values, and socio-demographic characteristics, and the direct and indirect effects of such attitudes on voting and electoral competition. The second wave of the Populist Attitudes and Political Preferences survey gives access to data from five online public opinion surveys conducted in Spain (2020), Argentina (2020), Portugal (2020), Italy (2020), and Germany (2021). These surveys allow us to map populist attitudes as well as other political preferences.
