They're announcing the results of the surveys taken outside the polling places. These results have to be taken with a grain of salt, since they're based on what people said when leaving, and this tends to undercount PP results--it's still not too politically correct to say you support the PP, so we'll see how this develops. They're talking about voter turnout of 60%, more than in 1999. Real results ought to be coming in about 11 PM or so.

TV3's survey counts the Socialists (PSC) with 3.3% of the vote and 44-46 seats, Convergence and Union (CiU) with 29.4% and 43-45 seats, the Republican Left (ERC) with 17.6% and a very surprising 24-26 seats, the PP with 10.3% and 12-14 sears, and the Communists (ICV) 7.6% and 8-9 seats. Libertad Digital has the results of three different surveys up.

This would mean a serious drop in the vote for the two major parties, a huge gain for the Republican Left, and small gains for the PP and the Commies. We'll see how it comes out.
