Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At the level of support the PP and PSOE get, their vote fraction losses translate pretty much proportionally to seat losses. The effect of neither of the two main parties getting more than 35% would be that smalled parties might get more seats at the margin by the d'Hondt method.

PP votes, nationally, are not going to go to IU, only to the PSOE or to UPyD.

There has been an attempt at reestablishing a European-style liberal party, but it hasn't been successful.

To err is of course human. But to mess things up spectacularly, we need an elite — Yanis Varoufakis
