36.1% PS-S&D (+4.6), 9 seats (+1)
25.7% PSD-EPP, 7 (+1)
  8.3% BE-GUE-NGL (+3.7), 2 (+1)
  8.2% CDS-EPP, 2 (+1)
  7.1% CDU-GUE-NGL, 1 (-2)
  3.4% Alliance-NI, (new), 0
  2.3% PAN-NI (+0.6), 0
  4.0% Other parties (-3.2)
  4.9% Invalid (-2.5)

32.0% Turnout (-1.7)

Seats and vote share by EP parties: S&D - 36.1%, 9 seats (+1); EPP - 33.9%, 9 seats (+2); GUE-NGL - 15.4%, 3 seats (-1)

19 seats (+1): 6 VP (+1), 5 SP (n.c.), 5 FP (+1), 2 NEOS (+1), 1 Greens (-2)

VP is polling much lower in the EU-Elections than in the national elections plus the EU-Exit Party, which grabbed 2.8% in 2014, is running again and "others" are polling very high (at around 6%).

My prediction is something like


28.0% VP-EPP (+1.0%)
25.6% SP-S&D (-1.5%)
23.5% FP-ENF (+3.8%)
9.8% NEOS-ALDE (+1.7%)
  7.2% Greens-EFA (-7.3%)
  3.4% EU-Exit Party-NI (+0.6%)
  1.6% Now-NI (+1.6%)
  0.9% Others (-2.9%)

Turnout: 57.2%

My first (probably bad) guess:

Spain (59 seats, 5 more than in 2014)

PSOE-S&D: 22% (14 seats, nc)
PP-EPP: 19.4% (12 seats, -4)
Cs-ALDE: 18.4% (11 seats, +9)
UP-GUE/NGL: 15% (9 seats, -3)
Vox-ECR: 14% (9 seats, +9)

ERC/Bildu/BNG coalition ("The Peoples decide")-G/EFA: 4% (2 seats, -1)
PNV/CC/CxG coalition ("European Coalition")-ALDE: 1.6% (1 seat, nc*)
Comproms/ChA/other allies coalition ("European Spring")-G/EFA: 1.6% (1 seat, nc)
PDECat-ALDE: 1% (0 seats, -2[++])

Miscellaneous others/blank/spoilt ballots: 3%

Turnout: 65% (only because it's the same day as the local elections, otherwise it'd be in the low 40s)

By EU group:

ALDE: 13
S&D: 12
EPP: 11
GUE/NGL: 9-10 (depending on whether Bildu stays here or moves back to G/EFA)
ECR: 9
G/EFA: 2-3 (depending on whether Bildu stays there or moves back to G/EFA)
EFDD: 0
ENF: 0

This is obviously subject to change depending on how the nationalists end up looking and how general election polls vary from here to May

  3.4% EU-Exit Party-NI (+0.6%)
  1.6% Now-NI (+1.6%)
  0.9% Others (-2.9%)

Turnout: 57.2%

That's a very strange prediction for several reasons:

The "others" that are currently polling at 6% (all EU polls conducted so far are by a single pollster !) will not materialize on election day IMO.

I think those are former Green voters from 2014, who are now unwilling to declare their leanings. They will likely not vote Green again, so either NEOS or VP or stay home (that's why I think the VP is significantly underpolled right now for the EU elections.) The VP usually does better in EU elections than in national elections.

EU-STOP (well, their strange, excentric fundie of a party leader) wants to run again, yes. But first they have to collect 2.600 signatures again and then hope for another miracle like in 2014, when they polled 0.5% and ended up with almost 3%. So, a big "if" here ...

Your other results seem to be OK, but I think the SP will do quite badly this year.

SP will pull in a large portion of the 2014 Green voters considering their more "progressive" party line since they are running as an opposition to the current VP-FP coalition, which is not as popular among Green voters.

VP are not running a candidate as charismatic and, more importantly, not as national-conservative as Sebastian Kurz. He has criticized Kurz for going contrary to the direction of the EU and putting national interests in first place.

FP might be able to profit off that fact somewhat, however, the low voter turnout will disadvantage parties whose voters have low faith in politics or come from a lower social class.

Smaller parties like EU-STOP tend to not pop up in the race until a short time before the election, largely because they lack the budget for long-term campaigning and media coverage, plus they are benefiting from the flip flops and inconsistencies in European Parliament decisions by the FP, such as opposing the ban on Glyphosate and abstaining from the Article 13 vote.

cDH/EPP 6,8% (-4,6%)

1 seat for CSP/EPP from German-speaking community

I probably overestimated PVDA-PTB a bit in Brussels + Wallonia. Greens have momentum, and i think overestimated cDH's decline a bit. Polls seem to underestimate them a lot.

Ecolo/EFA - 24,8% (+13,1%)
PS/S&D 24,6% (-4,6%)
MR/ALDE 18,2% (-8,9%)
PTB-GUE/NGL 10,8% (+5,4%)
cDH/EPP 9,4% (-2,0%)
PP/EFDD/ENF? 7,4% (+1,4%)

Probably something like this

Overall it seems inevitable that the EPP-S&D "grand coalition" will clearly loose it's majority - that could make things interesting.

Yes, but will also be interesting if and which of the far-right parties will join a common group.

If they remain fractured, their gains won't mean much.

Worth noting that in practice, the grand coalition is actually EPP-ALDE-S&D and not just EPP-S&D.

Losing their majority will be something symbolic but not mean much in practice.

Now, the day that there's a GUE/NGL+Right wing Euroskeptics negative majority, that will be the big day for the EU (in a bad way in my opinion). Even EPP-ALDE-S&D losing their majority would already be a huge blow (but the Greens could join I imagine)
