Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The question is why there is no left of PSOE party gaining votes.

Eyes wide shut, eh?

They are. Just not as fast as the PSOE is losing them.

If this surprises you, then you haven't been paying attention. And if you expect any other party or parties to be able to increase their vote share by a factor of five or so just because the PSOE is flipping voters the bird, then you must believe in Santa and magic ponies.

I suggest you familiarise yourself with the reality of parliamentary politics under proportional representation systems before you throw hissy fits at people who are actually doing something.
