I have no idea. In the first instance, the poll was spoiled by the gov't of Spain in more ways than one, not least of which duress in exercising the franchise. In the second, my dated impression is, over all the culture is bourgeois, inert, not predisposed to radical politics; that impression is unreliable.

If I were monarch, I would err on the side of majoritarian principle of "democracy", 50 +1% of 50+1% eligible voter turnout. Amen. Until further notice, as Zigmunt Baumann would say.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
