Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

At over 70% votes counted this is pretty definitive.

The results coming from Andalucia make it pretty simple. Accept the loss and move on.

So, PP loses votes in basque Country but gets voters directly from PSOE in Andalucia, and gets a little bit less of a quarter million there.. maybe. If people stay that way, how is going PSOE ever to come back.

I mean, would this 200 kvotes be PP voters forever....?

If so, it is huge.

A pleasure

Regional elections in Andalucia before 5 months... That should be interesting.

We are having PSOE below 7 million votes.

The trasnfers to small parties is huge. But it is the 200 kvotes lost in Andalucia that kill them. We are talking about 8 seats here.

It would have been 179 for PP instead of 187... It is so important for PSOE to recover them back...

The PSC had never lost in Catalonia in a General Election.

But we are talking about a net trasnfer of roughly 50 kvotes here from PSOE to PP. MAybe 100 kvotes. It has been important , but not devastating.

A lot of PSOE voters wfromt he last election were CiU voters who did not want PP to win. this time they focused on CiU.

Cadena Ser is making a lot of the results in the "red belt" around Barcelona.

Checking it. But it looked to me that it was 50 kvotes.

Important, but not huge.
