Abstract

Political polarisation and the empowerment of the libertarian right is a pressing problem in today's democracies. Previous studies have shown a gender gap in support for the libertarian right, with young male populations standing out(1,2). In turn, these right-wingers reproduce hateful, anti-rights, or outright anti-feminist discourses(3), based on biologicist perspectives.
Our paper presents results of dataset analysis obtained during the 2019 (4) and 2023 presidential elections. The relationship between political ideology (PI) and age and gender identity was analysed. Using a Multinomial Model, the 2019 PASO base (n=2105) showed significance for the interaction age and gender, with 75% of the population of right-wing males aged 15-30 (compared to 45% of females in the same age range). For the general election (n=1172) the gap was smaller but still males perceived themselves to be more right-wing. The 2023 general election base (n=1380) showed that men were significantly more conservative and right-wing, with the 15-30 age range standing out. They were also closer to Milei (age range 15-45), while women were closer to Bregman. For the Ballotage base (n=1270), it was observed that men were more right-wing than women, but in this case a right-wing population of women aged 30-45 stood out, close to Milei.
These results allow us to identify populations that are receptive to right-wing libertarian ideas. Although it remains to be analysed more factors that condition the predilection of young men for a right-wing proposal, as well as to evaluate the discourses that appeal to these populations, the gender gap in the population suggests that these are positions that are contrary to women's rights and dissidence won by feminism
