Is there no such thing as a "populist right" in Spain that wouldn't be comfortable with hardcore austerity?

Absolutely. The key question is if they are all the 10 million votes of PP or just three-quarters of them.

But at least half of PP voters think hardcore austerity is super-good... no matter what and forever. The question is what happens with the other half if austerity touches them directly. A first round can be understood as paying the price for PSOE who overspent and brought Spain close to collapse.

A second round? God knows

A pleasure
