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

But my point is that if PP and PSOE vote percentages go from 44%-28% to 36%-36% a party polling at 13% would get more seats.

In a 5-seat constituency the d'Hondt quotients would be

44 22 15 11 9 -> 3 seats
28 14  9  7 6 -> 2 seats
13  7  4  3 3 -> 0 sets

36 18 12 9 7 -> 2 seats
36 18 12 9 7 -> 2 seats
13  7  4 3 3 -> 1 seat

so a vote transfer from PP to PSOE could result in a seat transfer from PP to IU.

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