The Socialist PSOE would take 21% of votes, one per cent less than their general election result.

Ciudadanos’ ratings have improved with 18.8% of voters polled claiming they would vote for Albert Rivera’s party.

Podemos were the biggest losers, their 15.9% a five point drop on their impressive general election showing.

Meanwhile, Mariano Rajoy has said he would end the Spanish working day at 6pm.

Rajoy said he would end the traditional three-hour midday break.

Mr Rajoy said: “I will find a consensus to make sure the working day ends at 6pm.”
