If Podemos is drubbed, will Iglesias try and stay on anyway?

So is the Spanish left realigning, losing its support in various fiefdoms in the south to urban areas and more urban/high cost of living areas?

This is dumb. PSOE+C's is obviously the best possible outcome for Spain, but dumb C's leadership is stopping it. At least Vox flopped.

Cs is are barely better than Vox. They've been pushing extremely far right over the last few years and aren't really a standard "liberal" party anymore.

What does it take for a party to get expelled from the ALDE?

aLDE is a joke party with no actual political coherence, even by the standards of EU groups. It contains Fianna Fail, for crying out loud!

I would imagine the explanation for declines in the Left and Right in certain heartland regions is that the old patronage systems are dead or in life support (due to both austerity shrinking the state and graft-busting), so there's literally no point in keeping the old patronage machines alive?

First post-regional elections poll.

PSOE: 34%
PP: 15%
Cs: 15%
UP: 13%
Vox: 8%

Other than the fact that PP is actually up and not down imo and that I don't think PSOE has gone up that much (though they did get 33% in the EU elections I guess), it seems fairly believable.

Also, under these numbers PSOE+UP get an overall majority without needing anyone else.

Could Sanchez call another election so he won't have to rely on the hated separatists, or would that risk inducing election fatigue?

well, Croatia has its far-rightists in its supposedly "centre-right" party, which has a problem with Utase defenders, and even Ireland had a pretty good result last Presidential election for an anti-traveller agitator.

I think the big issue for C's is they were borne from the outrage at the craven corruption of Rajot et al, but those scandals are starting to fade away into the past.

What is CUP's relationship with Podemos? Any far left solidarity, or are they literally never going to compromise?
