"If it's al Qaeda, the Popular Party will surely lose votes and if it's ETA, things will probably stay the same, and they'll win." THE RULING CONSERVATIVE POPULAR PARTY CANDIDATE WAS LEADING IN THE POLLS BEFORE THE ATTACKS, PARTLY DUE TO HIS PARTY'S STRONG STANCE AGAINST ETA'S THREE DECADES OF VIOLENCE.
