Do you also want to know why the chicken crossed the road?
the PSOE lost 4.3 million votes.
Participation dropped by 1.3 million,
CiU, IU and UPyD gained 1.7 million,
and the PP gained 500,000 votes.
That still leaves a remnant, but that is probably somewhere in abstentions and blank votes and minor parties. So one half of PSOE voters did go to the left or regional parties, a third did stay home and only some voted PP.
SPAIN: Madrid Mayor Wants to Sweep Homeless Out of Sight - IPS ipsnews.net
Everyone on both sides of the argument is aware that the vast majority of the people sleeping rough and enduring the cold at nights are unemployed and homeless as a result of the prolonged global economic crisis. They are immigrants from Latin America, Africa and Eastern Europe, as well as large numbers of Spaniards.
So your snark might hold a bit a truth, austerity might have removed those voters from the rolls.
A vote for PES is a vote for EPP!
A vote for EPP is a vote for PES!
Support the coalition, vote EPP-PES in 2009!
