We will have a paper by Roberto Pannico which you can find in attach. The title is the following:

"Timing partisanship: stability, strength and sway of party identification with new parties"

Here the Abstract:

Time has been considered an essential element in the construction of party identification, both for classic and for revisionist accounts. Partisanship is reinforced by time, regardless of whether it is based on a social identity or on a running tally. But when new parties appear, time is, by definition, short. In this paper we explore the dynamics of party identification with new parties. Using panel data collected in Spain during a period of profound party system change, we estimate the extent to which partisanship with new parties is stable, intense and works as a heuristic for preference formation and vote choice. Our data suggest that time is not a necessary requirement to develop relatively stable, strong and meaningful partisanship. These findings seem particularly relevant in a context where new parties are on the rise.
