Hmm, I wonder if a PSOE-C's coalition with Podemos supply is at all possible.

1. C's and Podemos are fundamentally opposed over the Catalan issue. C's probably prefers Article 155 to the current events, while Podemos is fine with the Catalan govt holding a referendum. If the unstable Spanish government is brought down over Catalonia, this government won't come into being.

2. The poll posted with seat projections had PP+C's having a confident majority, far removed from the troubles of the current government. That would be the government forming in the event of new elections.
If only Susana Diaz had won...

If Susana Diaz won, the three major parties would be PP, C and Podemos. C does already have the centrist centralist electorate and electors usually prefer the original.
And the current leader is pretty much a Podemos rep.

This is amazing! Could a C's government actually happen?

Why so much cheering for a ethnic-nationalist party?
Because Podemos, PSOE not under Susana Diaz, and PP suck. Also, I see a glimmer of hope for an Iberian En Marche!

The previous post, like many others, ignores the fact they are a Castillan Spanish internationalist party.

Without Feijoo, it looks to be a competition between Santamaria and Cospedal, which is certainly interesting.

Also he appeals to the !Spain of the balconies", referring to people putting Spanish flags in their balconies during the worst phase of the crisis in Catalonia.
Can confirm this is still a thing, and I guess this is a real driver of votes. Sort of interesting that this is a political base.

I think the Cs performance depends on whether Santamaria or Cospedal wins the leadership election, with the former likely to take many of their votes.
