Spain appeared to have dealt a crushing blow to bi-party politics Sunday in historic elections that saw the incumbent conservatives score a small win tailed closely by the upstart far-left Podemos, an influential exit poll said.Just as voting stations closed at 1900 GMT, the opinion poll of 177,000 voters broadcast on television put the ruling Popular Party in first place with 26.8 percent of the vote, and Podemos coming second with 21.7 percent.The Socialist party (PSOE) scored 20.5 percent while upstart centrists Ciudadanos got 15.2 percent, according to the poll.If confirmed, the election results will mark the end of more than 30 years of bi-party politics in Spain, since 1982, during which the PP and PSOE have alternated power.
