Thanks.  The slight shift towards the establishment in a crisis I was expecting, but not enough to change anything substantively???

The polls failed to see that Podemos + IU < Podemos. And there must have been shy PP voters who hid the fact that they had not voted for Ciudadanos.

People who dislike the PP but who voted for them anyway because they could see no alternative may not be too keen to advertise that fact.  Everywhere you look people seem to be looking for an alternative to established parties but not really being able to settle on what that alternative should be.
