Strange contradiction between The NY Times and Le Monde regarding the race between the Socialist and Popular Parties. According to the former:
"Before the bombings, Prime Minister José María Aznar's conservative Popular Party had a slim lead over the Socialist Party in its effort to stay in power for a third term."
Yet Le Monde writes:
"...before the Madrid attacks, the Popular Party was assured an easy victory against the Socialist Party."
So how big of an upset was the Socialist Party's win?
