The ERC - CiU gap seems a lot narrower than it was when the common list was first proposed, so Mas may not be losing as much.

OK, thanks. It is not clear to me whether Mas or Junqueras has really conceded more, or if they both gain in expected-value terms by quietly excluding independents and gambling for the leadership of the next government.

Podemos won't govern on its own, so it is hard to answer.

Didn't Vox do really poorly in the European elections? They often act as a primary for new challengers in Europe.

Is it fair to say that the Podemos lists' performance at local level will be expected to be lower than their true national level?

Which is funny, because 99% of the world considers him Spanish.

I can't think of many other campaigns with so much evidence that four parties vied for first place. Maybe the last French first round?

Is it possible that alliance with Cs will turn out to be Macron's first big, bad bet in European politics? Some say the same is true about the Franco-German pact, excluding smaller countries who are now grouping together (an argument favoured by Eurointelligence, who regularly read this site, I believe). Either way the augurs seem good for PSOE, which by my jaundiced view is good for everyone except some right-wing Spanish people.

Finally, in non polling related news, Manuel Valls is officially in as Cs' candidate for Barcelona mayor

Lara says he would rather not be just C's, later confirmed in the official announcement of his non-party candidacy, and from Le Monde I learned a new word to me, "le parachutage".
