Spain's Socialists 'braced for defeat'

Spain is holding its general election tomorrow and the outgoing Prime Minister Jose Luis Zapatero will not be standing for a third term.

Shaun Ley, presenter of The World this Weekend which will be coming from Madrid tomorrow, says that although the public mood is upbeat among supporters, the party is "braced for defeat". He adds that a recent poll puts the centre-right Popular Party "about 15 points ahead".
