The PP is expected to win a majority which is
...deemed necessary to push through a new round of austerity measures and job-creation incentives intended to cut the public deficit while creating economic growth.
Rajoy is not promising that things will be easy:
In his final rally on Friday evening, Mr Rajoy warned that the road ahead would be difficult.
"We are not fooling ourselves, we're not going to sort everything out from one day to the other," he told thousands of blue-flag waving supporters in traditionally PP-supporting Madrid.
"We Spaniards know that it will take a lot of effort to get things done, and there is more effort ahead to take Spain forward. We know that nothing is free."
But after 8 years of economic stagnation under the Socialists, the Spanish people are banking on a man who was second in command under Jose Maria Aznar's leadership, a time when the country's economy was booming.
The Socialists had 8 years to prove their form of government works- they failed miserably. Hopefully, the U.S. people will take note and vote conservative in 2012.
